Each guest receives an eight-course rotating tasting menu.

Other notable winners were In an Outstanding Category, the Peruvian American Chef Erik Ramirez of Brooklyn's Llama Inn, and the Japanese American Chef Niki Nakayama, of the two Michelin-starred restaurants n/naka, in Los Angeles, may have received a great deal of media attention, but it was Rob Rubba, of Oyster Oyster, in Washington DC who won the award.
