Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Chef Alain Ducasse is closing Adour at the St. Regis hotel in DC, The Washington Post reports. The announcement comes only months after Ducasse shuttered the New York location of Adour. After it closes on May 31st, the restaurant will reopen as Decanter. Current chef Sebastien Rondier will continue to run the kitchen, and will create a menu focused on "the flavors of Spain, Turkey, Italy and Southern France." Rondier says "after 13 years of working under Alain Ducasse" his cooking will certainly be influenced by him.
