Michael Psilakis
With his success here, you’d have to say this self-taught wunderkind (pictured) isn’t up-and-coming anymore. He’s arrived.

David Chang
Momofuku Noodle Bar, Momofuku Ssäm Bar

Will Goldfarb
Room 4 Dessert
This itinerant culinary bomb-thrower seems to have found a measure of inner peace at this sweets-centric establishment. Next on the agenda: real dinner.

Daniel Humm
Eleven Madison Park
This youthful new chef specializes in snooty, Continental cuisine, with a modern twist.
