This morning, Food & Wine editor Dana Cowin posted amusing selfies to reveal the Best New Chef winners: Justin Yu (Oxheart, Houston), Cara Stadler (Tao Yuan, Brunswick, Maine), Greg Denton and Gabrielle Quiñónez Denton (Ox, Portland), Matthew Accarrino (SPQR, San Francisco), Paul Qui (Qui, Austin), Eli Kulp (Fork, Philadelphia), Ari Taymor (Alma, Los Angeles), Dave Beran (Next, Chicago), Matt McCallister (FT33, Dallas), and the only New York-based honorees, Walker Stern and Joe Ogrodnek (Dover, Brooklyn). Texan diners might be the real winners here.
