Pittsburgh Magazine invited the chefs who work in the kitchens of the establishments selected for our 2016 Best Restaurants list, as well as the featured Outstanding in Their Field chefs, to a celebration at Biergarten, the rooftop bar at the Hotel Monaco. The Commoner Executive Chef Wyatt Lash and his team prepared a fantastic assortment of eats and drinks, and Millie's Homemade Ice Cream debuted a couple of their new summer flavors to mark the occasion. 

Photographer John Altdorfer was on the scene to capture the party.
