New York, US

Estela is the classic case of "under promise, over deliver". A boisterous, casual bistro with thoughtful, ultra-serious cooking. Here, chef Ignacio Mattos has perfected a plating style in which one ingredient is effectively hidden underneath another, such as pillowy ricotta dumplings veiled by a paper-thin lattice of raw mushroom slices. An expert editor, he has an incomparable ability to pare dishes down to two or three essential elements, which are often surprising (see: panna cotta with vinegar and honey) but always complementary.
