A local chef at Drew's Bayshore Bistro in Keyport has been named by peers as being among the nation's most skilled in the kitchen, according to NJ Monthly Magazine.
The book publishers explained the chef nomination process on its website, writing, "Our analysts speak to nominated chefs across the country by way of appointment and telephone interview. Chefs are asked a series of proprietary questions that score their peers on a numerical scale and identify veterans and up-and-coming talent. The process is calculated to accurately record the opinions of leading chefs about the talent of their colleagues both within the same geographical area and nationwide."
Drew's Bayshore Bistro was destroyed during Hurricane Sandy by raging waters from the Keyport Harbor. However, they have since rebuilt and reopened at 25 Church Street - just down the road from their old location.
