Best of the Best
On July 2, in celebration of the publication’s 30th Anniversary of it’s Best of the Best awards, Robb Report released their top 30 most influential restaurants over the last 30 years.
According to the authors of the story, “We spoke to some of the world’s leading chefs and restaurateurs about the places that have changed the game in ways both big and small.”
Highlands Bar and Grill made the prestigious list, which internationally includes restaurants from Paris, Mexico, London, Montreal and Copenhagen. In the South, restaurants in New Orleans, Nashville and Charleston were recognized.
Here is an from the Robb Report story describing why they chose Highlands Bar and Grill.
“You could have called Highlands Bar & Grill the Susan Lucci (ask your parents) of the James Beard Awards. For nine straight years it was nominated to be America’s most outstanding restaurant, and each time it went home empty-handed. This year, the 10th nomination proved to be lucky, with the restaurant finally taking home the coveted prize while pastry chef Dolester Miles also captured the award for best pastry chef. Highlands opened in 1982, and in the South, owner Frank Stitt has become legend. At Charleston Food and Wine Festival the best chef award is actually named after him, and he’s been named the “Godfather of Southern Cuisine.”
Highlands paved the way for new Southern cooking.”
