Chef, General Excellence
Jamie Bissonnette, Toro and Coppa

We didn’t need last year’s Food & Wine accolades to tell us that Jamie Bissonnette rocks. The famously inked chef drives the two hottest spots in town — Toro and Coppa (co-owned with Ken Oringer) — which launched our obsession with charcuterie and offal. And while it will pain us to share his skills with New York when a Toro location opens there later this year, we’re proud he’ll be showing that city what Boston is made of (hint: a whole lotta pork).
