Indian-origin chef nominated for ‘Bon Appetit Hot 10’


The ‘Bon Appetit Hot 10‘ competition felicitates the best new restaurants in the US.

Chef Ravi Kapur’s restaurant in San Francisco has been nominated for a coveted spot for ‘Bon Appetit Hot 10’ competition that felicitates the best new restaurants in the US.

Liholiho Yacht Club co-owned by Kapur is one of the six San Francisco restaurants that have made it into the monthly US food and entertainment magazine Bon Appetit’s annual list of 50 nominees for “America’s Best New Restaurants”.

The restaurant is famous for its mouth watering menu like tuna poke with nori crackers, beef ribs with kimchi-chili sauce and the off-menu, house-made Spam, served over rice with furikake. “Another distinctive feature about this restaurant is the giant smiling black-and-white photograph of Kapur’s mom behind the bar,” the report added.

Kapur was named ‘Chef of the Year’ by San Francisco Magazine earlier this year. He began his cooking life with San Francisco’s Boulevard (with chefs Nancy Oakes and Pam Mazzola) and as executive chef at the duo’s Prospect – both restaurants recognised for their flavour driven American cuisine.

Liholiho Yacht Club was opened in January this year. Bon Appetit will announce the winners on August 18.
