The search was conducted by Bon Appetite magazine. “It’s a grind, but a fun one,” says deputy Bon Appetite magazine editor Andrew Knowlton, who traveled with senior editor Julia Kramer over 5,700 miles to more than 40 cities in search of the restaurants that are defining the way we eat in 2016. “We had more real contenders this year than ever before,” says Knowlton.
