But fine dining didn't become less fine and I credit managers, and mostly chefs, who refuse to lower that bar and love food and continue serving good food."

Meredith Arthur: It may be late in the evening...

But it's never too late for Jean Georges to win for Outstanding Restaurant and Dan Barber to win for Outstanding Chef. Not too surprising overall. In fact no surprises. But well deserved success all around. Congrats to the winners. What a happy night for them all.
