The Brooklyn Foodie Awards

Best Chef (Female)
Elizabeth Falkner (Krescendo)
Alex Raij (La Vara)
Liza Queen (Potlikker)
Katy Sparks (Toby’s Estate, Union Market)
Anna Klinger (Bar Corvo)

Lists like these drive home the fact that there’s a continued dearth of females heading up Brooklyn’s kitchens. There are a lot more ladies currently taking the reigns in Manhattan, so let’s step it up BK. Especially since the above chefs are so entirely kickass. Love Alex Raij’s original, intensely flavorful tapas at La Vara, and Falkner’s skillful, yet unassuming pizzas at Krescendo. But Liza Queen opening Potlikker after such a long hiatus was like John Travolta expounding on the Royale with Cheese back in 1994. A star is reborn!
