Forbes announced its “30 Under 30: Food & Wine” list today, and precocious New Yorkers cleaned up. Jeff Zalaznick (Parm), Spencer Rubin (the Melt Shop), and Rae Cohen Bernamoff (Mile End) all got recognized, which we consider a victory for sandwiches (hurray!). Dessert pioneers Natasha Case (Coolhaus), Kate Wheatcroft (Bien Cuit), and Alexandra Ray (North End Grill) also made the list, as did restaurant critic Tejal Rao from the Village Voice, as well as locals who encourage us to get our drink on: Dan Amatuzzi (wine director at Eataly), Talia Baiocchi (Eater’s wine editor), Bridget Firtle (the Noble Experiment), Dave Sands (Grady’s Cold Brew), and the Industry City Distillery guys. Danny Meyer was on Forbes’s panel of judges, and the man’s got good judgment — we agree with all his picks. Congrats to all. [Forbes]
