How We Did It:
For many categories, our 19 judges were divided into specialized teams. Anyone with a perceived conflict of interest in a particular category was excluded from that category. We thank them all for their time and extraordinary dedication. Meet the judges by clicking here.
On the Cover:
Each year we ask our Chef of the Year to create a star-themed dish for the next Restaurant Awards cover. The 2010 winner, Frank Pabst of Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar, used Pacific scallop and sea urchin mousse with ponzu jelly for this striking image.
