This review is from: Where Chefs Eat: A Guide to Chefs' Favourite Restaurants (Hardcover)
Where Chef's Eat is a guide to restaurants from around the world that has been recommended by famous and respected chefs. Over 400 chefs are listed at the front with their backgrounds (including their own restaurant) and their recommendations. Each sections is relatively brief.
The guide is then split into different geographical locations with recommendations in each area. If its a city then there is a map of that area as well (not a very useful map to be honest). The recommendations are categorised as follows
Breakfast - self explanatory
Late Night - for late opening and hunger pangs
Regular Neighbourhood - Round the corner from the chef and good for regular eating
Local Favourite - The best in town
Bargain - Food on a budget
High End - Special occasion eating with a high price tag
Wish I'd Opened - The places the chef's wish they had opened
Worth The Travel - This is really worth seeking out and going to (not always in remote places either)

I like this guide as it isn't too heavily centred on any geographic area (for instance I have found a few for my trip to Bali this summer). However, the listings don't give enough information at times (how much is expensive?) and not all listings have a write up (some have a line from the chef and other have nothing at all). There is usually a phone number or website so you can get around that. Also it can be a little difficult to navigate at times. There are indexes for each area and type of food which is useful though.

I am pleased I bought this and its very useful if you travel. Obviously it may become out of date quite quickly which is a concern. But for me its a good reference and I will definitely be checking out a few of the listings either here in the UK or on my travels.
