Executive Chef Andrew Rodriguez of the Ho-Ho-Kus Inn & Tavern, Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey, has been honored as one of the country’s top culinary talents in the inaugural edition of Best Chefs America.

This is the first-ever peer review guide of U.S. chefs, who were chosen after extensive interviews between their fellow chefs and Best Chefs America analysts. Chef Rodriguez has been showcased in the 386-page coffee table book released in March.

Best Chefs America analysts conducted more than 5,000 confidential interviews with chefs who were nominated by other chefs, culinary professionals, and food enthusiasts across the country. The interviews consisted of proprietary questions; and software was used to aggregate the data. Chefs earning the highest scores among their peers in their region were included in the guide.

“I am thrilled to be nominated by my peers and included in Best Chefs America,” Chef Rodriguez noted. “This recognition is truly an honor and gives me yet another reason to be appreciative of my fellow professionals and chosen profession.”

Chef Andrew Rodriguez has a background and style described as “Seasonal New American” with influences of regional Italian cuisine. He is a graduate of the Institute of Culinary Education and began his career at the famed Avoce in New York City, which, during his culinary stewardship received the Michelin Star award. Before taking over the helm at the Ho-Ho-Kus Inn & Tavern last year, he was the Sous Chef at Ravi in Suffern, New York.

The Ho-Ho-Kus Inn & Tavern, located at One East Franklin Turnpike, Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey, is open seven days a week, serving lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch. For more information, or to make reservations, please call (201) 445-4115.
