Chefs cook and taste a lot
of food. So for them to say that a dish is the best thing they've ever eaten, well, you better listen. Ahead of New York
magazine's annual New York Taste event
— the most insane all you can eat (and drink!) party in the city — 10 of the most celebrated culinary wunderkinds let us in on the one meal (or two, or three) they're each constantly
consuming (or dreaming about). Savory squid ink pasta at Osteria Morini? Check. Green apples from the Union Square Market? Check. Steak tartare at Estela? Check. Check. Check. Whether it's the most elaborate tasting menus or the simplest of delights, these chefs share what keeps them coming back for more. Haven't found that special dish of your own quite yet? Then, consider your plans for this weekend made.
