Best Ingredient-Driven Restaurant (2010)
An acolyte of the farm-to-table credo, Chef Tommy Lasley’s dishes are altars to the Hudson Valley’s bounty. Local apples, baby beets, and leeks share a salad; Stone Barns pork filled hot dogs; foraged mushrooms meld with squash in a Parmesan-kissed braise. His breads and pastas are local, too—sourced a few feet away, from his very own kitchen. Those jalapeño, rhubarb, and pimento pickles on your plate? From his kitchen. The purple potato chips with your pork croquette starter? Yup, those too.
Best Retro Dessert (2010)
This dessert has it all: sweetness, crunch, creaminess, the play of warm caramel and cool ice cream. The summer version replaces apple-cider glaze with Meyer lemon, caramel sauce, and dark chocolate.
