Chez Panisse

Berkeley, US

Since 1971, Chez Panisse has pioneered countless practices that have come to define how America eats, from popularising goat cheese in the '80s to listing the individual farms and producers who provide their ingredients among the dish descriptions on its daily changing menus. Alice Waters, a school teacher turned chef turned political activist and food evangelist, is the force behind it all. Accordingly, the restaurant's ethos is defined by local, organic produce and sustainable farming practices. Its cuisine is undeniably French and quintessentially Californian.
