The top 21 restaurants received one or two plates in a unique ‘plating’ evaluation system. A one-plate award is for excellent cuisine, a top-quality eating experience. Two plates are awarded for exceptional destination dining – extraordinary cuisine that warrants a special trip. As consistency is such an integral part of performance in the restaurant industry, three plates will be awarded to some or all of these restaurants for upholding and elevating their
standards, in the future. JHP GOURMET GUIDE ™ top restaurants, their chefs and their recipes Discover 100 diverse restaurants from haute cuisine to hot-and-happening.
