What Are Eric Ripert and Drew Barrymore's Favorite Cheap Eats?

Twelve chefs and a celebrity answer: What's your favorite cheap eat?

Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). 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.

At this year's Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, Eater approached chefs with a simple question: What's your favorite cheap eat? Answers run the gamut from canned sardines (Eric Ripert) to leftover Chinese food (Ashley Christensen), but one thing they all have in common: You too can enjoy these treats without dropping too much money. Watch till the end for a special shoutout to a certain LA ramen shop from none other than actress Drew Barrymore.
