Palm Springs Life

Johannes restaurant in downtown Palm Springs is on a roll.

First, Palm Spring Life readers chose Johannes as the top Continental Restaurant for Best of the Best 2013.

And now chef Johannes Bacher has been honored as one of the country’s top culinary talents in the inaugural edition of “Best Chefs America”.

“Best Chefs America” is the first-ever peer review guide of U.S. chefs, who were chosen after extensive interviews between their fellow chefs and “Best Chefs America” analysts. Chef Bacher has been showcased in the 386-page coffee table book released in March.

“I am thrilled to be nominated by my peers and included in Best Chefs America,” said Bacher.  “This recognition is truly an honor and gives me yet another reason to be appreciative of my fellow professionals and chosen profession.”

“Best Chef America” analysts conducted more than 5,000 confidential telephone interviews with chefs who were nominated by other chefs, culinary professionals and food enthusiasts across the country. The interviews consisted of a series of proprietary questions, and software was used to aggregate the data.  Chefs earning the highest scores among their peers in their region were included in the guide.

“Chefs themselves truly understand what it takes to be successful in this competitive industry, and Best Chefs America offers them a forum to express their views,” said Elizabeth Fishburne, “Best Chefs America” lead analyst.

Bacher is known as the “Eclectic Chef”. His extensive experience traveling the world has contributed to the vision for his restaurant.  His subtle, creative dishes are exciting and his cosmopolitan menu shows off Bacher’s Austrian roots.

Johannes is open seven days a week starting at 5 p.m. Located at 196 Indian Canyon Drive – for reservations call (760) 778-0017 or visit www.johannesrestaurants.com.
