[ laughter ] [ cheers ] welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose is off, so anthony mason is with gayle and me this morning. great to have you here. we're going to begin with breaking news from california as hillary clinton makes political history. cbs news projects that clinton wins the nation's largest democratic primary 56-43% over bernie sanders. clinton claimed another big victory last night as the first woman to be the presumptive presidential nominee of a major u.s. political party. she told supporters her message is the right one against the republicans and donald trump. >> we believe that cooperation is better than conflict, unity is
empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls. [ applause ] >> hillary clinton won last night's primaries in california, new mexico, south dakota, and new jersey. bernie sanders won in montana and north dakota. cbs news estimates clinton now has 2,764 delegates, and that's nearly 400 more than needed to clinch the nomination. nancy cordes is in studio 57. she covered hillary clinton's victory speech. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it was a moment of truf celebration for clinton, for her supporters, sandwiched between a tougher-than-expected primary season and what's shaping up to be a brutal general election. the president congratulated her on the feat last night, but her opponent didn't acknowledge it, leaving one big question mark on an otherwise decisive win. with a mix of pride and relief, clinton claimed the title that
narrowly lly eluded her eight y ago. >> for the first time in our nation's history that a woman will be a major party's nominee. [ cheers ] >> reporter: signs of that historic achievement were everywhere. in the audience, across social media, and plastered on her website in large letters. >> tonight belongs to all of you. [ applause ] >> reporter: an emotional milestone for women in the crowd like ellen landsberger. >> i was told when i was a child that i shouldn't go into medicine, it wasn't for women. it's time for a woman to be in the white house. >> i want to congratulate senator sanders -- >> reporter: clinton praised her democratic opponent and support or a hard-fought campaign. >> it never feels good to put your heart into a cause or a candidate you believe in and to come up short. i know that feeling well.
[ laughter ] but as we look ahead -- [ cheers ] let's remember all that unites us. >> reporter: in california, sanders' backers were in no mood for unity. >> had a gracious call from secretary clinton and congratulated her on her victories tonight. [ booing ] >> reporter: and sanders was in no mood to concede. >> we take our fight for social, economic, racial, and environmental justice to philadelphia, pennsylvania. some. >> reporter: he's also cutting half his staff as clinton solidifies her argument against trump. >> he wants to win by stoking fear and rubbing salt in wounds. and reminding us daily just how great he is. >> reporter: sanders now trails clinton by about 900 delegates, but he is doing a
in d.c. tomorrow where just 20 delegates are up for grabs in the nation's final primary next tuesday. clinton starts hitting battleground states on monday, and aides say she's going to be focused on two things, guys -- unity and trump. >> all right, thank you very much donald trump, speaking of mr. trump, wrapped up the republican primary season with a scripted and serious speech promising to unify the party. republican national chairman reince priebus tweeted the trump speech took "exactly the right approach and was perfectly delivered." earlier, trump lost more gop support over his comments about the mexican american judge in a lawsuit against trump university. major garrett covered last night's speech. he's with us in studio 57. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump was in a fix and staring into a political abyss. he leaned on every stylistic crutch imaginable -- a teleprompter, brand
audience. he was quiet, cautious, and completely conventional. >> you've given me the honor to lead the republican party to victory this fall. >> reporter: relying on teleprompters, donald trump tried to calm republicans alarmed and offended by recent race-based attacks. >> i understand the responsibility of carrying the mantle, and i will never, ever let you down. >> reporter: trump said nothing about the turmoil he set in motion with allegations of bias against a federal judge based on his mexican heritage. instead, trump tried to woo potentially disaffected democrats. >> to all of those bernie sanders voters who have been left out in the cold by a rigged system of superdelegates, we welcome you with open arms. >> reporter: trump spent much of his speech ticking through policy proposals while also laying the groundwork for future attacks on hillary clinton. >> the clintons have
politics of personal enrichment into an art form for themselves. >> reporter: the speech came in an atmosphere of panic and recriminations with republican leaders openly admonishing their standard bearer. >> it's time to quit attacking various people that you competed with or various minority groups in the country and get on message. >> i do think that those comments are racist comments. >> reporter: earlier tuesday, house speaker paul ryan spoke to "face the nation's" john dickerson. >> when anyone in our party, especially our nominee, says things that run contrary to our beliefs, to our values, to our principles, we have an obligation to call them out. >> reporter: trump dismissed his critics. >> there's a lot of anger, i guess, anger. they can't come back. they can't get over it. they have to get ever to ideally. >> reporter: trump's message was disciplined. something gop leaders have been publicly pleading for. it was too late for republican senators lindsey graham of south carolina, mark kirk of illino,
saying they could never endorse trump. >> major, thank you. cbs political news director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is with us. good morning. it was a blowout in california, bigger than anyone suspected. a big win in new jersey. she has a majority of the delegates. she's cast this as a historic moment not only for her party but for this country. >> that's right. mil's first task -- hillary clinton's first task is to unify the democratic party. that's important because she needs the enthusiasm of the sanders voters, but she has to grab this moment and use that to kind of focus all attention on democrats, the country that's watching, and talking about the historic moment which, of course, is not -- no small thing, helps do that. helps get everybody singing from the same song sheet. >> bernie sanders says he's fighting on, but president obama, senator harry reid, will be meeting him tomorrow. what do you think that conversation will go like? >> i think it will be a heck of a race. my gosh, knowledge of the enthusiasm. you really -- think of the enthusiasm. you really helped us all, you
we've all opinion working on. how great a job you did. let us all join and go forward in defeating donald trump who is an existential threat to all those things we believe together. bernie, we'll see you in philadelphia, you'll have a big speech. join the team. then we'll see how he responds. yeah. >> can we take a moment to talk about paul ryan for a second in i can't believe he would be happy with this headline. "i'm with racist." you did the interview him where he seems to be in a real rock and a hard place here. he's saying he's criticizing donald trump, but he's saying i'm going to support him for now. >> yesterday was a perfect example of the pickle he's in. he was at an event to talk about his new poverty agenda, the first plank in a multi-plank republican agenda he wants to sell to the country through a conversation about policy and mandate to govern. on the other hand, he has to say the nominee of our party are saying things totally antithetical to the core foundation and principles of o
paul ryan talked about how the party was founded on opportunity and equality, and that the nominee -- this is the first time at least that paul ryan has had to rebuke donald trump. that doesn't go away. >> do you think he's getting pressure to walk back his endorsement? >> he is getting pressure from those inside and outside to walk that back. problem is, he's speaker of the house. he has to represent all republicans. on the other hand, how many can continue where ideas that he is trying to build are being potentially threatened by the nominee? >> john, do you think that the republican party will be unified by the convention? do you think donald trump will be approved as the nominee? is there talk about someone else? >> to the extent there's talk about someone else, it's -- maybe wishful thinking, or we've seen how little they've been able to do that so far. i think unity comes in two ways. one, they all are reminded how much they don't like hillary clinton. two, donald trump spends several months or i guess we need one month until the convention, not having these eruptions. that he stays
he stays focused to hillary clinton. and that he kind of stays within the lines. that so far has been difficult. >> yeah. >> all right. john dickerson. nice to have you here. you can see john's full interview with speaker ryan sunday on "face the nation" here on cbs. and congratulations on one year in the chair. >> thank you. >> seems like yesterday. congratulations. the united states says a chinese fighter jet performed an unsafe intercept of an american spy plane. it happened yesterday over the east china sea at a time of strained relations between the u.s. and china. margaret brennan is at the state department with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the chinese jet flew too fast and too close to a u.s. air force surveillance plane on patrol in the east china sea, according to u.s. pacific command who called this an unsafe encounter. fortunately, no other provocative maneuvers occurred,
who say this is a case of what they call improper airmanship. and they plan to raise it with beijing because it's the second such dangerous incident in less than a month. just a few weeks ago a chinese jet flew within 50 feet of an american plane. and that violated a safe conduct agreement recently protectored between beijing and washington. today's -- tuesday's episode, i should say, happened at the very same day that secretary of state john kerry met with china's president to try to cool tensions which have been rising over a series of territorial disputes with u.s. allies. anthony, in a statement today from china's foreign ministry, they put the blame squarely on washington and called for an end to all u.s. surveillance flights in the waters off of china. >> all right, margaret brennan, thanks. two f-16 fighter pilots are safe this morning after a midair collision over eastern georgia. their jets collided dur
routine training mission last night over jefferson county. the pilots ejected and were hospitalized. the f-16s were assigned to the south carolina air national guard. a prosecutor is considering charges after a deadly hit and run that involved bicyclists in michigan. witnesses say a pickup truck hit nine adults riding bikes along the shoulder of a road last night. that's outside kalamazoo. five people died at the scene. four others were taken to the hospital. prosecute jeff getting said the community would rally as it did when an uber driver shot and killed six people in february. >> i'm at a loss to describe how i feel. i'm at a loss to describe the impact to the community from these incidents. >> the 50-year-old truck driver has been not identified. police were already looking for him after a series of 911 calls reporting erratic
surveillance video captures terrifying moments and terrifying is the word for a 13-year-old girl and her mother. the man grabs the girl and drags her across the floor at the dollar general store. this happened yesterday west of orlando, florida. the mother then jumped on top of her daughter to try to stop the attempted abduction. luckily, an off-duty sheriff's deputy, jonathan behnen, happened to be in the parking lot. he stopped the suspect from getting, way. the 30-year-old is charged with kid expect thatting and child abuse. his motive -- kidnapping and child abuse. his motive is unknown. the teenager was shaken but not hurt. >> was that random that he was trying to abduct that girl? >> not clear what was happening, but very scary. security experts renewing warnings about password safety after the latest high-profile hacking victim. nfl commissioner roger goodell was the target. hackers took over his twitter account and falsely claimed
goodell had died. reena ninan is here with how the latest breach may have happened. >> reporter: good morning. you might call roger goodell lazar lazarus. he is back from the dead. in recent days, hackers have taken over accounts belonging to facebook ceo mark zuckerberg. if a social media account can be hacked, how safe is years? roger goodell tried to make light of the situation by tweeting this, "man, you leave the office for one day of golf with jim kelly, and your own network kills you off. #harsh." tuesday, hackers postsed these messages on the nfl's verified twitter account claiming goodell was dead. >> almost everything to a certain degree is hackable. when you reach a certain status, people want to take you down. it's almost a goal. >> reporter: the hackers claim they found the password in a social media employee's e-mail. other hackers were able
into mark zuckerberg's twitter and pinterest pages because he apparently used the same password for his linkedin account. that site was breached in 2012. user data from more than 100 million members was exposed. >> everyone that's watching is using a password that's the same on at least one other service. because it sounds low-tech, it's more human nature that sets us up to potentially be vulnerable to this. >> reporter: in recent days, accounts belonging to keith richards, kiley jenner, katy perry, and drake have also been hacked. it's believed that passwords will eventually be replaced by by metrics. >> facial recognition technology, iris canning and fingerprint de-- iris scanning, and fingerprint detection will be how we log in to sites. >> he says, "we recommend people use a unique and strong password for twitter." members should
across sites. and avoid using the same password. hard to do, but they say it makes a difference. try to leverage advanced security features and update often, gayle. >> it's hard to keep track. thank you very much. good that roger goodell took is in stride. rajjer is fine. -- rajjer is fine, fine, fine. >> scary. the stanford swimmer who sexually assaulted an unconscious swimmer says he wishes it never

san francisco this morning hopes a new tactic will stop auted ute company's controversial -- utah's acontroversial approach to shoplifters. according to court documents, major retailers including walmart, bloomingdales, and burlington coat factory have had private security agreements with the firm. only on "cbs this morning," the san francisco city attorney shows anna werner why he's asking for a conjunction against what he calls extortion against the suspects. >> reporter: good morning. cec was founded by two harvard graduates with a goal of using what's called restorative justice instead of jail to teach shoplifters to reform. the san francisco city attorney alleges the program is breaking the law to make money at the expense of the people it promises to help. this video com
education company. it's shown to people allegedly caught shoplifting in stores. >> right now, the agents who have detained you are preparing a case against you. >> reporter: the video tells them they could go to jail. but cec's program offers them another option -- sign an admission of guilt, pay as much as $500, and participate in an online course. then move on with their lives without a criminal record. >> the offender funds their educational program -- >> reporter: company official jeff powers explained it this way in a video on their website -- >> this is a story of a retailer giving an individual that made a bad decision a second chance. >> reporter: and the company says it works. it told "cbs this morning" that less than 2% of shoplifter who complete the cec educational program re-offend. this former dallas police chief applauds it in another video from the company. >> the cec program provides the opportunity for someone who makes a mistake to correct that mistake. >> reporter: san francisco city attorney ds
agree. you're calling it extortion. >> i am calling it extortion. absolutely. >> reporter: herrera is suing the company and wants an injunction to stop it from "contracting with retailers to threaten suspects with arrest and criminal prosecution unless they watch the video in a secluded room with security guards." >> you're falsely imprisoned in this intimidating environment with no counsel, no representation. and i don't think there's any doubt whatsoever that it's extortion and false imprisonment. >> reporter: the company declined an interview but told us in a statement it has worked closely with law enforcement agencies and prosecutors in california and across the country to ensure that we are complying with the law. herrera says the company's program doesn't provide the protections offered by the courts and alleges cec sends letters to harass and intimidate those who don't pay. >> this is sort of pseudo-criminal justice for nothing more than pure profit of private

it's wednesday, june 8th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead, including hillary clinton's historic primary victories. one of clinton's first supporters in congress, senator claire mccaskill, talks about what comes next. first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> it was a moment of true celebration forclinton. >> president congratulated her, but her opponent didn't acknowledge it. >> hillary clinton's first task is to u tnifyhe democratic party. she needs the enthusiasm of the sanders voters. but she has to grab this moment. >> hello. >> donald trump was in a fix. he leaned on every stylistic crutch imaginable. >> we're only getting started, and it's going to be beautiful. >> trump was also quiet, cautious, and
conventional. the chinese jet flew too close to a u.s. air force eisurvllance plane. u.s. pacific command called this an unsafe encounter. roger goodell is back from the dead. hackers have also taken over accounts of mark zuckerberg. people have been out, some tell me, since midnight. 15,000 tickets will be handed i t. tell you, police think based on the amount of people here, those tickets are going to go fast. hillary clinton is now the presumptive democratic nominee, making her the first woman to be nominated for president by a major u.s. party. today president obama marked the occasion by say, not yet, hillary. i'm gayle king with norah o'donnell and anthony mason. we're glad he's here, because charlie is off today. >> nice to be here. hillary clinton is embracing her st
this morning she is america's first female presumptive presidential nominee of a major political party. the frosting on the cake was her four primary victories including california. bernie sanders, who needed a sweep, only won two states. >> cbs news estimates clinton now has 2,764 delegates. that's 911 more than sanders, and more than she needs to clinch the nomination. in her victory speech last night, clinton thanked her supporters and remembered the most important woman in her life. >> my mother believed that life is about serving others, and she taught me never to back down from a bully which it turns out was pretty good advice. [ cheers ] i really wish my mother could be here tonight. i wish she could see her daughter become the democratic party's nominee. [ cheers ] >> dorothy rodham would have turned 97 this
she was born on the day that congress approved the 19th amendment giving women the right to vote. >> with us from capitol hill is missouri senator claire mccaskill. she's one of the first members of congress to endorse hillary clinton nearly two years before clinton started her 2016 campaign. senator, good morning. you have certainly not been late to the hillary clinton party. let me ask you, it was pure joy on her face last night. i can only imagine what she was knowledging, what -- she was thinking, what you were thinking. what does it mean to you personally, and what does it mean to the country? >> like hillary clinton last night, i really missed my mother. my mother was someone that when i was 7 years old insisted that i say trick-or-treat and vote for john f. kennedy. she was like hillary clinton's mother. she made me believe from a very young age that serving the public was honorable, and that women could do anything. last night i think for a lot of women around the country was a special moment.
the senate, we looked at each other trying to keep from busting out in a big grin. all of us knew what yesterday meant in terms of the history of our country and the struggles that so many women have gone through. i thought her speech last night was particularly uplifting in recognizing what our country really is all about. >> senator, on to campaign and november. there's an interesting quote from senator gillibrand who told the "times," "people are so undecided about how they feel about female leadership, and it's something people really struggle with." you think the fact that hillary clinton is a woman is in any way going to be an obstacle for her in this campaign? >> i think for some it will be. with other people it will be a big plus. i think that, frankly, this is a different kind of election. as she said, this isn't about republican policies versus democratic policies. it's whether or not wie're goi
office someone who is vulgar and makes frequent racist comments, who makes it up as he goes along, who is risky and reckless with what he says, who has been a buffoon in many instances and would be a buffoon on the world stage. versus someone who is strong and steady and capable. i really think the contrast is so significant in this election, that i have to believe america will come together. and as she said last night, break down barriers and unite and build bridges, not focus on the ridiculous notion that mexico is going to build a wall. >> senator, we saw trump last night turn to what has been described as the object of his ridicule, a teleprompter, in what was a careful speech. does that suggest there's going to be a different trump? >> i think there will be a battle between those who are trying to script donald trump and the real donald trump. this is a man who famously sai
forgiveness. i think the only part of the speech that donald trump can claim last night was the fact that he removed the apology for the racist and bigoted comments he made about judge curiel. >> and hillary clinton in the primaries did well with african-americans, hispanics, senior, but poorly with young voters. she lost 70%-30% to bernie sanders. how does she get the young vote? >> bernie has to be a part of that -- >> do you expect that he will? >> you know, this campaign for him, as he said all along, is bishops. and there couldn't -- is about issues. and there couldn't be a bigger gulf between how people view the issues than between hillary clinton and donald trump. i think for bernie, the irony is he began the campaign saying we need to let the people decide, not the superdelegates. now he's ending the campaign saying never mind what the people decided, we need to have the superdelegates decide. >> but bernie sanders said he's going to the convention. he says he's going to take it all the way. do you think now is the
>> i think we need to give time. i have so much respect for what he's done and his supporters. he's elevated the debate of our party. i think we are stronger because of it. i think over time, over the next few weeks, i think this will come together. i know he cares deeply about making sure that donald trump's finger is never near the button. >> you said you don't want to be hillary clinton's running mate. do you think there's a possibility of a two-woman ticket? >> here's what i would like to see -- i would like to see hillary clinton do what i know she discuss does best, make a thoughtful, strong decision before b someone who could take over if there was a tragedy. >> senator, good to see you this morning. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> i like your glasses. >> thank you, thanks, gayle. >> this from a woman when has a lot of glasses. >> you know glasses are the perfect accessory. y i read about it in "oprah," the magazine. >> i have one pair. >> how many do you

it transformed treatment as the first cure that's one pill, once a day for 12 weeks. certain patients can be cured with just 8 weeks of harvoni. harvoni is a simple treatment regimen that's been prescribed to more than a quarter of a million patients. tell your doctor if you've had a liver transplant, other liver or kidney problems, hiv, or any other medical conditions, and about all the medicines you take including herbal supplements. taking amiodarone with harvoni may cause a serious slowing of your heart rate. common side effects of harvoni may include tiredness, headache and weakness. i am ready to put hep c behind me. i am ready to be cured. are you ready? ask your hep c specialist if harvoni is right for you.
in our "morning rounds," why expiration dates on foods are confusing to shoppers. 91% of americans have thrown away perfectly good food just because the date on the package has passed. up to 40% of the food we produce in this country goes to waste. now there's a push to create a federal standard for food dating labels. director of harvard's food law and policy clinic joins us. good morning. this is interesting. explain the three main kinds of date
best used by, and use by. >> right nowy sigh of in the terms -- right now, you can see many of these terms on food products. they are all -- sell enjoy plenty to tell the story when they should take it off the shelf so they can row take their stock. the others are about quality and freshness. so the manufacturer will do taste tests with consumers and say, this is when everyone still thought my product tasted good. they're not about safety. many people throw food away. >> aren't safety and quality both important? what's the difference between the two? >> actually, safety is -- safety means it was contaminated. you could get e. coli or salmonella. quality, obviously we all want to eat food that's good quality, but it's much more subjective. you're not going to get sick if you eat something. it's about you think it tastes good -- >> i could think it's great and you don't? >> exactly. >> i always use that sell by date if i don't by it by then, it's going to kill me. >> right. >> what is the stamp
milk? it says we have a picture that says september 9th. does that mean you have to drink it by that date or that's for the store to sell it? >> milk is a great example actually. you know, it could be either -- usually the store won't sell it after that. most consumers throw that milk away when that date passes. but actually milk's a good example because it's pasteurized which kills any harmful contaminants. when the date passes, when you're milk, even if it smells bad, it's not unsafe. it's just about quality and taste. so i might think that the milk is -- still tastes good and you might think it doesn't. >> if it smells bad and it's curdling, that's not a good thing. >> there's currently no national system for food data. you support a bill that would create something that would uniform -- create something more uniform? >> right. i think what would be fantastic is what this bill does is that it divides food into two categories. most foods, all the quality dates we talked about, would say best if used by. and then the small handful of foods where there is a safety
you'd be able to open your refrigerator and find the foods that can be eaten after the date if they still taste good, and these should be thrown away. >> like the simplicity. what products should have expiration dates no question about it? >> there are a few we know of. >> give me two -- >> deli meats and unpasteurized cheeses. actually they're safe but after the date, they might become unsafe. and the bill would leave it up to the food and drug administration and the u.s. department of agriculture to make a list of those. >> all right. thank you. >> i know there are still many grocery stores that are selling meat and milk that has passed the expiration date. you have to look closely. interesting to talk you to. harvard looking into this. >> yes. norah's taking notes. we got it. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> i never pay attention. i will. first on "cbs this morning" -- i don't cook either. a new list of the best new restaurants in america and what makes them so special. that's ahead. you're watching "cbs this morning."

children. >> what about my babies? she was never worried about herself. she was never worried about anything but them, and she looked to me and said, can you do there for me? can you do this? >> reporter: you said to your husband -- >> yeah. >> reporter: six kid? what did he say? >> he took a long pause and said, we'll do what we have to do. >> reporter: when you went back and you were able to say to beth, we can do this, what did she say? >> we cried together. i told her that i would love them, i would never be able to love them like she would, but i would do the very best that i could. >> reporter: the best has been better than anyone could have imagined. is it kind of crazy?
>> but it feels like home. >> reporter: the hallways of the culley home are little bit louder, and the piles of laundry, they've tripled. that's 14 -- but beth's 14-year-old daurghter says it's easier than expected. >> we all have each other, and if feels like home. >> reporter: tell me about your mom. >> she was a really good mom. i know we meant everything to her. >> reporter: how does she remind you of your mom? >> she pretty much does the same thing and loves us. >> we're grieving, but we know she's with us. she used to joke and say when one of them's acting up and you don't see it, i'm going to be tapping you on the shoulder. >> reporter: who's the biggest troublemaker nir group? >> i would say jackson. >> reporter: lily, you agree, huh? j

now it's time to show some of the morning's headlines. the creator of that show, lynn manuel miranda, wrote an opinion piece in "the new york times" calling for a crackdown on ticket bots. miranda blames the automated software for gobbling up tickets to popular shows like "hamilton." they're then sold at a marked up price. it's illegal to use bots in new york. miranda is urging passage of a state bill that imposes harsh penalties on repeat offenders. he says, "you shouldn't have to fight robots just to see something you love." bloomberg says china is planning a massive sea lab 10,000 feet under the ocean. it would be in the disputed waters of the south china sea. the exact location is unknown. the deep-sea platform would help china hunt for minerals, but there's concern it may also serve a military purpose. a government agency in china says it is not designed to be used against any country or region. new york's "daily news" news" reports that tiger woods won't play in the

"time" reports that america is not making any headway in the fight against fat. one study shows that 40% of u.s. women were obese in 2013 to '14. the rate for men was
2011 to 2014 and found 17% of children and adolescents were obese. the researchers say restaurants and the food industry must get involved to confront the problem. and the "washington post" reports on fish being able to recognize human faces. the fish are known for their water spinning skill. they can spin at certain faces. seems they can distinguish one human face from another. something never before witnessed in a fish. they also had surprisingly good memories. >> i always told my children i was convinced my goldfish knew who i was. >> now there is scientific proof. >> was he spinning at you? >> and they recognized me when i came home at night. they didn't believe me. here's the evidence. first on "cbs this morning," "food and wine" magazine unveils its second annual list of restaurants of the year. the magazine's pick for the ten best new places to eat in america will be in the
the restaurants range from an inexpensive los angeles eatery with a new approach to fast food to a washington, d.c., spot that sources all of its ingredients from the mid-atlantic region. all ten picks have opened since january, 2015. editor nilou motamed is here to reveal the list. >> good morning. >> as i mentioned you in the green room, my first job ever was at "food and wine" magazine in 1978. i'm excited that you're here. >> i love the fact that you left it in such good shape. thank you very much. >> it all started with me. you've got a cool list here. and one of the -- one of the restaurants on the list, loco in watts is, a fast food restaurant. >> we love this concept because these two chefs, roy choy and dana patterson, both of whom have been "food and wine" best new chefs recently have teamed up to create something they hope will revolutionize the fast food industry. this is not fast food as you think about it.
>> no sewed ano french fries. they're sneaking tofu and healthy thing into things like cheeseburger. >> sneaking? >> you know -- >> they're expanding. they're going to make a chain. >> they're using this as an incubator. they've opened up in oakland. they're going to be opening up in other areas that are basically food wastelands. the idea of serving underserved communities with food that's both healthy and affordable. no dishes are over $6. the idea of us focusing on new restaurant that are making a change to their community. there's another restaurant called cala in san francisco where the chef is not only creating amazing food, you can go for the mexican food. you also go and don't even realize that she's hiring nonviolent felons to work in her kitchen because she saw this there was a need, and she's addressing it. >> giving back in a different way. what makes your list? it's more than just good food? >> it's good food. good ambiance. it's the idea of the fact that the restaurant has-
exciting that it is more than the sum of its part. we criss-cross the country all year long looking for talent. and this list of restaurants is really the ten most exciting places that are new to eat in the u.s. right now. >> one of the interesting trends you've found is restauranteurs using spaces that are -- that are different in order to transform into a place where you can eat and enjoy good food. >> there's a place in austin, and it's a former laundromat. great food, again, fun. they're reusing a space. and rene ortiz, the chef, is phenomenal. another place called death and taxes. you can guess why -- >> i love this. it was actually a mortuary? >> it was a mortuary and a bank. the cheeky chef -- >> what's the energy there? i don't know about that. >> the chef is -- >> does atmosphere count? >> atmosphere is 100% great. what's great about ashley christiansen is she's so committed to cooking over live fire, she shipped a 1,900-pound grill from texas to get
>> and in d.c., dabney's? i would like to go there. >> dabney is fascinating because the chef is so committed to using local ingredients that he only uses ingredients from the mid-atlantic. we all know the northeast and mid-atlantic, not great as a food spot all year. but he's also created a garden that he cooks from, again, in the middle of d.c. >> you say restaurants are moving away from the traditional white tablecloth experience. and that experience is really a big part of this now. >> experience is crucial. i think there's a -- there's room for fine dining, but there's room for these places that feel very much like they're -- that they're a reflection of the point of view of the chef? it's not everything for everyone at these restaurants. this is a unique experience, singular experience. the most important thing is that these restaurants make you feel like you have to be at them. i think the restaurant in new
