Los Angeles, US
It's hard to imagine a more well-rounded Italian restaurant than Bestia. There are excellent pizzas, wood-fired and blistered around the edges, platters of world-class salumi cured in-house, handmade pastas, grilled whole fish and gargantuan dry-aged steaks. In this soaring warehouse space, Ori Menashe oversees the savoury food, while his wife Genevieve Gergis is the mastermind in charge of the pastry kitchen. Together, they have created one of the most popular restaurants in Los Angeles.
