2013 is the year of the chef as hipster artiste. He (for they mostly are) is a cowboy of the stove, a bourbon-swilling rebel who cares nothing for the traditional niceties of dining. Reservations? Old school. Today’s hot chefs are shockingly fine cooks despite the rough edges on their hospitality. — Joanne Kates
