Washington DC, US
History, nostalgia and ingenuity are the cornerstones of rising star Kwame Onwuachi’s cooking, served here in a light-filled, waterfront dining room in the InterContinental at the Wharf. Witness the goat roti, inspired by Onwuachi’s Trinidadian grandfather’s favourite dish, which is marinated in a complex green seasoning before being braised for five hours, or the king crab, served in a silky yellow curry. Both are typical of a menu which takes its cues from a culinary heritage that spans Africa, the Caribbean, New Orleans and the Bronx, and which sees far-flung spices and age-old recipes jubilantly meet razor-sharp European technique.
