While rating systems can be a great resource for helping you make a decision and for setting expectations when it comes to food and wine, context is important. Who created the rating system? What criteria do they prioritize and how equitably do they apply those criteria? Tony and Chef Cindy are here to help demystify the various rating systems that rank the best restaurants, wines, travel destinations, and more. They will also share some of their top-ranked dining experiences.

Tony Foreman is the founder and co-owner of Baltimore's premier restaurant company, Foreman Wolf, comprised of six restaurants and two retail wine stores. The combined staff is over 350 employees and has been a major driving force in putting Baltimore on the map in the world of fine wines and dining.
Cindy Wolf is the executive chef at Charleston and was a 2006, 2008, and 2014 James Beard Award finalist for Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic. Chef Wolf's cuisine is backed by French fundamentals and grounded in preparations that emphasize the natural flavors of the very finest products.
