Michael McCarty

Michael’s New York, NYC; and Michael’s Santa Monica, Santa Monica, CA

Thirty-five years ago, Michael McCarty opened his eponymous restaurant in Santa Monica and put Southern California cooking on the map. The pioneering farm-to-table restaurant and its New York counterpart, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this month, launched the careers of chefs like Jonathan Waxman, Mark Peel, and Ken Frank and fundamentally influenced the country’s culinary evolution.
