The airline revealed this week the 30 finalists from coast to coast who can dream of making the short list of the winners and maybe even enthroning themselves at the top.

It was an anonymous gastronomic critic who traveled the country to taste the creations of new establishments from all walks of life – open between the end of spring 2021 and May 31, 2022 – who determined those in the running.
