FOOD & WINE Editor in Chief Hunter Lewis said: “Restaurant editor Jordana Rothman traveled 37,000 miles over six months to research and deliver FOOD & WINE’s 2018 Restaurants of the Year. The winners offered more than unforgettable food. They are the first places we seek out when we step off the plane, and they showcase the important role that restaurants play in their communities. From the end of a cobblestone alley in Washington, D.C. to the first restaurant in decades to open in Braddock, Pa., we applaud how they are pioneering a new emerging culture of more community-minded restaurants.
