2020 New York Rising Stars

Rising Stars Restaurant Week
Tuesday, December 1 Tuesday, December 15

We're back in our hometown to celebrate the city's most talented up-and-coming food and beverage professionals. After meeting with more than 100 young chefs, pastry chefs, bartenders, sommeliers, and artisans across the metro area, we are excited to announce our newest class of New York Rising Stars. These 27 food and beverage professionals are recognized not only for their culinary strengths and talents but also their ability to navigate, lead, and inspire during one of the industry's most trying times.

Rising Stars Restaurant Week is a two-week promotion showcasing the 2020 New York Rising Stars restaurants and dishes, wine pairings, cocktails, sake, and pastries that wowed the StarChefs team. The Restaurant Week will run from December 1 through December 15 and all the featured food and drink will be available for either dine-in, takeout or both. 

Rising Stars Giveaway: With $100 restaurant gift cars and Vitamix blenders up for grabs, don't miss your chance to win! Share an Instagram story or post of any featured Rising Stars dish or drink to enter. Participants must tag @StarChefs and #StarChefsRisingStars to be considered.

In conjunction with Rising Stars Restaurant Week, StarChefs will release the New York edition of Rising Stars Magazine. A link to download a digital version of the magazine will be available here soon.
