Best Soup (2009)
The word “soup” hardly covers this experience, which is the culinary equivalent of sinking into a three-foot featherbed, laid with million-thread-count linens. Here, the delicate oyster-flavored white root is puréed with lavish cream, and flecked by perfumed black truffles. Fragrant, silken, plush, and delicious, this warm liquid haunts our most luxurious dreams.
Best Appetizer - Truffled Chickpeas (2010)
The world’s most delicious dishes draw from both humble and elite realms, and Café of Love’s addictive chickpeas are no different. Earthy, yellow pulses form the base of these Parmigiano-Reggiano-battered fritture, in which the chickpeas are deep-fried until their shells are shatteringly crisp. The generous pile arrives doused in heady truffle oil and sparkling with gritty salt; this dish is as addictive as any we know.
Best Pie Slices (Tarte Tatin) (2010)
Butter, puff pastry, and open-faced caramelized apples make this classic upside-down tart simple and sophisticated at the same time, if not as American as apple pie.
