Uproxx: The Best Meals of 2018, According to Star Chefs
Chris Royster: “I had a really incredible experience at Jose Andres restaurant The Bazaar in Beverly Hills. The decor was awesome and unique plus really innovative food and cocktails. Standout dishes that were crazy and inspiring were a foie gras waffle with peanut butter and honey, foie gras terrine cotton candy, and a wagyu beef Philly cheesesteak that was a decadent creamy cheese filled puff with seared sliced wagyu on top. The whole menu was focused on molecular gastronomy.
On the other end of the spectrum, I went to Cape Cod this year with my family and I enjoyed one of my all-time favorites: a fried clam roll from Kevin’s Seafood & Spirits. Fresh clams right out the bay, shucked and then lightly breaded and fried before being served on a soft hot dog roll with some fresh lemon wedges and plain mayo. Tastes like the sea, and I can’t help but think of my family and vacation when I eat it.”
