      1. Brooke Williams (?) original chef-owner of Beechwood, now c-o of Hudson House and Tripel.

        I also like Josie LeBach (?) of Josie's in SaMo. And Diana Stavardis of BLD.

        Wish I could remember their names or spellings!

          I would add Pippa at Villetta to the list.

            Thanks, I was also thinking of her, just haven't been there yet myself, and didn't know her name!

              Thank you my Dear, I knew it wasn't spelled correctly!

              +1 for Phurstluv's mention of The Tripel.

              1. re: Ernie

                Carolyn Styne isn't a chef, she is Suzanne Goin's business partner and also a Sommelier

                1. re: TracyS

                  I would put Nancy Silverton and Suzanne Goin at the top of the list.

                  1. re: maudies5

                    i would also add Zoe Nathan of Huckleberry and Rustic Canyon, although she may be more of a pastry chef.

                  2. re: TracyS

                    Oh geez, how could we forget her??
