Best Local Bartender

Major Ludwig, Rice Contemporary Asian Cuisine

Readers' Picks

The prophecy has been fulfilled. When Rice Contemporary Asian Cuisine bartender Major Ludwig took top honors in this category last year, we wrote that if Ludwig "keeps it up" with his artful achievements in alcohol (see Best Local Martini), we expected to see him named Best Local Bartender for a second year in a row. Well, here we are a year later, and here is Major Ludwig with another major feather to put in his cocktail-cap.

2nd Place: Michael Reed, Mai Thai,

3rd Place: Michael Bowers, Modern Hotel,
