Elements Named 23rd In OAD’s Top 100 U.S. Restaraunts

This restaurant has quietly moved up our list from a ranking of 30 in 2010; given recent reviews, it seems poised to crack our top 20 in 2014. At the heart of chef Scott Anderson’s success are the terrific ingredients that come from the Garden State, which he utilizes in dishes like diver scallops harvested from the Jersey Shore and served with ham, split peas and morels, and Anderson’s rice-less mushroom risotto – finely diced mushrooms, mushroom broth, tomato, parmesan and white truffles. Comments were effusive: “absolutely a top-notch dining experience driven by creativity and a dedication to acquiring the best product”; “I’ve eaten at the chef’s table on six different occasions and it keeps getting better”; and “the most creative restaurant between New York and Washington, D.C., and absolutely worth a special trip.” The restaurant is moving into a new location in the spring of 2015.
