The Next Four-Star Cuisine

2 posts in this topic

At present, the four-star restaurants (as judged by the Times) are French (JG, Daniel, Le B), American (Per Se), or Japanese (Masa). I would add that although Keller is American, there menu at Per Se clearly borrows a lot from the French. On another thread, you mentioned that the new Batali/Bastianich venture, Del Posto, is gunning to be the first four-star Italian restaurant.

Is there another cuisine for which you can envision someone taking that kind of risk in New York? What would be the next likely candidate?

AT some point, I assume, we'll have a really high-quality Chinese restaurant. I could see someone doing something fabulous with Indian food as well. And wouldn't a really impressive MIddle Eastern restaurant add something wonderful to our food scene?
