BISTRO chef named elite by her peers

South Boston News
Margaret Moorefield of BISTRO 1888 / January 20, 2014

Chef Margaret Moorefield of BISTRO 1888 has been honored as one of the country’s top culinary talents in Best Chefs America.

Best Chef’s America is the chef’s guide to chefs. The annual publication is compiled by a comprehensive process of interviewing thousands of chefs across the country. Chefs are nominated for participation by fellow chefs and food enthusiasts.

“I appreciate all of the recognition we have received over the past ten years,” said Moorefield, “but this honor is especially rewarding as it is recognition from my peers.”

“Chefs themselves truly understand what it takes to be successful in this competitive industry, and Best Chefs America offer them a forum to express their views on who really stands out,” stated Elizabeth Fishburne, Best Chefs America’s Marketing Coordinator.

“Better than food writers, or any type of Internet survey, chefs know who are the best chefs‚ in their hardworking, demanding, and creative profession. With this in mind, Best Chefs America conducted thousands of one-on-one confidential interviews to find out who chefs considered to be the ‘best’ among their peers. To be considered the ‘best’ is the highest honor any professional, including chefs, can receive and those included in this book should be very proud to have their work acknowledged by their fellow chefs.”

Less than one percent of all chefs and professional cooks in America made it into the book.

BISTRO 1888 is Moorefield’s third upscale restaurant. She and co-owner Barbara Cage opened the Bistro in 2003. Cage said, “Chef Margaret has such a great palate and is so wonderful at combining flavors, textures and seasonal ingredients. Every single week, diners, who travel extensively, rave about her cuisine. This honor of being in the one percent of great American chefs is well-deserved.”

BISTRO 1888 is located at 221 Main Street in downtown South Boston and is open at 5 p.m. for dinner Tuesday - Saturday. Reservations are recommended: 434.572.1888
