The Best New Restaurant in the US No-One Knows About
14 August, 2018
The best new restaurant in the US is a small 22-seat tasting menu spot serving Nordic-inspired, local fare in Oklahoma, according to Bon Appétit magazine.
Nonesuch, in Oklahoma City, has taken the top spot on the magazine’s annual The Hot 10, a list of the 10 best new restaurants in the US, as chosen by two of the publication’s senior staff.
The trio of chefs behind it, all under 30 and with little formal training, forage many of the ingredients for their 10-course, $75 tasting menu locally, but by all accounts, the restaurant is perpetually half full. Not for much longer.
Watch a video introduction to the restaurant below.
Bon Appetit’s Editor-at-Large Andrew Knowlton had this to say about falling in love with Nonesuch: "Its chefs have mastered how to incorporate hyper-local and foraged ingredients in a landlocked state, how to minimally yet artfully plate each dish, and how to express an undying love of all things fermented, pickled, and cured. This is the place that will put OKC on the national dining map."
