A Guide to the Restaurants of Netflix’s ‘Chef’s Table’

Here’s a map of all the dining establishments featured on David Gelb’s hit culinary documentary series 

View as Map

The Netflix series Chef’s Table brings viewers into some of the world’s greatest kitchens. And while the show often focused on high-end restaurants in its first few seasons, creator David Gelb and his crew have gradually expanded their scope in recent years to include more destinations where guests can enjoy amazing meals at a reasonable price. The one thread that unites these restaurants is that they all serve food that reflects the personal journeys of the talented chefs in their kitchens.

Here’s a guide to all of the restaurants prominently feature on the first six seasons of Chef’s Table as well as the France-themed mini-season, listed based on geography, west to east. This map includes one restaurant per chef, with notes about affiliated establishments and other projects, plus information that might come in handy if you’re planning a visit.
