For the past two years Logan Cox has been at the helm of New Heights Restaurant. Cox’s extensive training in Italy shows in his in-house charcuterie, pickles, and burrata—all inspired by his time there. He also toys with spherification and takes his inspiration from Thomas Keller for dish components like his chickpea panisse. In dishes like Poached Red Snapper, Shellfish Consommé, Miso Milk Sphere, Pickled Hen of the Woods Mushrooms, English Pea Purée, and Pea Shoots he keeps his textures and flavors balanced, with the silky sphere of miso milk and sweet English pea purée playing off of one another. It takes moxie to experiment in such an established restaurant, and Cox’s willingness ties in well with the owner’s small plate, stripped-down remake of the restaurant.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Poached Red Snapper, Shellfish Consommé, Miso Milk Sphere, Pickled Hen of the Woods Mushrooms, English Pea Purée, and Pea Shoots
  • Shenandoah Valley Leg of Lamb, Swiss Chard, Roasted Anchovy Jus, Red Pepper Conserva, and Chickpea Panisse
