There is a ton of talent packed in this app. It may not cover ever base-but it's the highest quality of chef/restaurant you can hope for!
Great hidden gem recommendations all across the US from the country's most well known & up and coming chefs. StarChefs.com travels the country to find the culinary world's most influential and innovative chefs so while you might not know all these chefs now, you can bet you will soon. These guys are the Daniel Boulud of this generation...and there's even a rec from him in there as well. Great app, great chefs, great food!
It does just what it says, find the cool places with great food and cool vibes without break the bank.
Excellent idea which is very well executed. Only suggestions would be to include the city/state under each restaurant or chef BEFORE you click to the expanded page - would make selection a bit easier. But for 1.0 it's excellent and it's always interesting to see that the favorite picks of the great 4-star Starchefs are usually the cool, off-the-path finds. Bravo Starchefs.
All my favorite chefs (and some new ones I should learn about) share their favorite out-of-the-way restaurants. The around-me feature allows you to find somewhere cool to eat where ever you are. Links to restaurant websites allow you to check out more details. Connections to a reservation system or a delivery service would improve the app!
Not a very exciting or informative app. Overloaded with Asian restaurants and it certainly lacks creativity or variety. Seems to be a knock off from Chefs Feed. Wouldn't pay a dime for this app.
I was excited to see this app and expected star chefs to be at the level of a star chef. Well there are only listings in a few cities in the US and nearly none in most states! How is this worth paying for when it has almost no listings in it???!!!!! It's worthless!
Haven't heard of 90% of these chefs, how do I know they're worth listening to?
