Watch Critic Lesley Chesterman Explain Her Best Restaurants of 2014

In a new video from The Gazette.

A side benefit to a food critic's eschewal of anonymity? Videos like this, in which The Gazette critic Lesley Chesterman expounds on her top restaurant picks of 2014 in some detail.

In the clip, Chesterman talks about how this past year was big for comebacks, why the word "caring" is crucial and why she appreciates so-called hipster chefs.

Chefs and restaurants that get a little extra praise in the five minute video include Salmigondis, Les 400 Coups chef Guillaume Cantin, chef Shinji Nagai and Bouillon Bilk, which Chesterman considers world class and the best of the year.
