We are delighted that 2 restaurants with Hestan kitchens have been featured on CNN Travel’s World’s Best Restaurants in 2022. While there were only 3 restaurants based in the United States featured on this list, we are proud to see Atomix and SingleThread rank among some of the best restaurants in the world!
Atomix, located in New York City, is run by a husband and wife team – Chef Junghyun and Ellia Park. This innovative restaurant is a place where guests can dive deep into Chef Park’s cuisine that draws inspiration from Korean traditions and techniques. With 2 Michelin stars, Atomix’s chic design and a razor-sharp aesthetic creates a sophisticated and cool atmosphere. With Fine Dining Lovers, Chef Junghyun describes his thoughts on Atomix’s growth by commenting, “We are experiencing many new things as a team and as a restaurant, and it is important to actively seek ways to continually learn so that we can further develop. I believe that we are still in the process of defining what the Atomix style is; the current expressions we are producing are still representative of the process. Whether it’s in design or cooking, I believe it’s all a process.”
SingleThread, located in the heart of Healdsburg, California, is a farm, restaurant, and inn that is run by one of the country’s most accomplished chefs, Kyle Connaughton alongside wife and farmer, Katina Connaughton. With 3 Michelin stars, SingleThread ties nature and luxury together for a breathtaking experience. The restaurant harvests from its 24-acre farm daily which provides 70 percent of the produce, herbs, and edible flowers. In Forbes, Chef Connaughton comments on their responsibility as a Farm-Restaurant-Inn, stating, “At SingleThread Farm, we have an incredible opportunity to amplify our agricultural focus along with our educational purpose. Our team can share knowledge of regenerative agricultural practices through tours and at our Farm Store. It is as much a farm as a learning space for our guests who want to deepen their relationship and knowledge about where their food comes from.”
