Opened this past January, Curtis Stone had high expectations for his tasting menu restaurant, which took over a tiny sliver in Beverly Hills and focusing on a single ingredient per month. So far, it's gained plenty of accolades and critical acclaim, but today Besha Rodell announced it as the Best New Restaurant for the year. Writes Rodell:

A monthly ingredient of honor might become burdensome and repetitive in a lesser chef's hands, but Stone understands balance. Throughout the meal, the flavor is amplified and then subdued, in places used as the main attraction and in others as a subtle garnish. The result is always a lovely meditation on the season, a subtly thrilling meal that feels special in all the right ways. [LA Weekly]

Kudos to a celebrity chef who can come into town and do a great restaurant.
