For the second year in a row, a Hub chef has been named as one of Food & Wine Magazine’s best new chefs of the year. This year, the magazine has honored Tim Cushman of O Ya. Congratulations are in order for Chef Cushman who, at 55, is the oldest of the ten chefs so honored. Between this award and the restaurant’s recent acclaim from the New York Times, it is shaping up to be a very good 2008 for Chef Cushman.
Meanwhile, last year’s local Best New Chef winner, Gabriel Bremer of Salts, was hailed as an up-and-coming celebrity chef by Forbes Magazine. Congratulations to Chef Bremer as well! It’s a good day to be a Bostonian foodie, no?
