Food & Wine names Vicia’s Michael Gallina one of best new chefs in America

It was announced today that Vicia executive chef, Michael Gallina, has been named to Food & Wine‘s annual list of best new chefs in America. This year marks the list’s 30th anniversary and includes 11 chefs from nine different cities, such as Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York City.

“It is a sincere honor to be named to the Food & Wine Best New Chefs 2018 class,” Gallina says. “As a young chef, this is something I always aspired to, a dream goal I have always pursued, but never really thought possible. I am so proud to have created our restaurant in St. Louis. There is truly no place else I would have wanted to plant the roots of my career. It feels really amazing to be recognized amongst such a talented and diverse class of chefs from across the country.”

Food & Wine’s restaurant editor Jordana Rothman flew 37,000 miles to dine across the country and make her selections.
