Big congratulations to the very talented Matthew Gaudet, who's been named one of Food & Wine's Best New Chefs 2013. The creator of West Bridge's fabled "egg in a jar" was lauded for his "compelling twists on regional New England cooking." And in case there was any doubt that Boston is just as exciting as New York, his former home, Gaudet says: "I missed the smaller ambience of Boston, [which] feels like a village compared with New York. If it wasn’t for Brooklyn, I probably would have lost my mind. It’s how we kind of see Cambridge—[as] the borough on the other side of the river." Way to go, chef! [F&W;, Earlier]
