The winners of the James Beard Awards were announced this week, crowning the best establishments and biggest players in the restaurant industry. Known as the Oscars of the culinary world, a panel of over 600 judges selected winners in 23 different categories, from “Rising Star Chef” to “Design Icon.”  

This year, the title of “Best New Restaurant” went to New York City’s Le Coucou. Opened in June 2016, the French restaurant is helmed by Chef Daniel Rose — who also runs the Paris-based Spring — and famed restaurateur Stephen Starr. 

Le Coucou has earned plenty of praise for its delicious dishes as well as its charming dining-room setting. It was given a three-star review by New York Times food critic Pete Wells back in November. Below, take a look inside America’s best new restaurant.  

Le Coucou is located in 11 Howard, a boutique hotel in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood.
