Best Restaurateur in the US: John Besh - May 2015 - Chef/restaurateur John Besh was born and raised in Southern Louisiana, so he's been familiar with its unique culinary heritage and regional ingredients from a young age. He studied at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and spent time in influential kitchens in Europe, where his mentors included chef Karl-Josef Fuchs of Romantik Hotel Spielweg in Münstertal, Germany, and chef Alain Assaud of the eponymous restaurant in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France. These experiences formed an ideal foundation for his cuisine at his fine dining establishment Restaurant August, which made its debut in New Orleans in 2001. His contemporary French menu puts an haute Creole twist on wild fish and fine boutique meats. Locally sourced ingredients, such as Louisiana caviar, feature prominently. As a testament to his talent, Restaurant August has been honored on GAYOT's Top 40 Restaurants in the U.S. list since 2006. It's also on GAYOT's New Orleans Top 10 lists for highest food ratings, romantic restaurants, best wine lists and special occasion dining. - read full article
