Chef at Drew's Bayshore Bistro Named Among Best in New Jersey

NJ Monthly's new peer-reviewed book lists almost 200 chefs across the country it calls the best.

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.

Andrew Araneo, who also owns the establishment, was among the 196 New Jersey chefs listed in the new peer-reviewed book Best Chefs America.

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.
