RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Reno’s downtown dining gem, Campo, joins the distinguished 2012 honorees of the Best New Restaurants in America announced today by Esquire Magazine.
A list handpicked by food journalist and connoisseur, John Mariani, Esquire’s Best New Restaurants in America lists 20 different eateries that rival all others in food quality, originality, and atmosphere. Mariani recognized Campo for its stylish atmosphere, Chef-owner Mark Estee and Chef Arturo Moscoso’s mastering of Italian-American dishes, and their personal commitment to making everything in-house.
“It’s an honor for the CAMPO team to be recognized by John Mariani and Esquire for such a prestigious award,” said Chef-owner Mark Estee. “ I feel that this solidifies our belief that Reno is on its way to being food city to be reckoned with.”
The list, now in its 28th year, recognizes restaurants around the U.S. that deliver the complete package. Campo shares the title with past winners such as San Francisco’s Michael Mina, Los Angeles’ WP24 by Wolfgang Puck, and New York’s Salinas and ABC Kitchen. Campo is the first Reno restaurant to grace the list.
“This award is for Reno, and all the hard working chefs and restaurant people that have worked so hard in the past, and now to make Reno what it is,” Estee said.
The annual list of Best New Restaurants of 2012 is in the November issue of Esquire on newsstands October 16th.
