Cured Chef Named Beard's Best of the Southwest Nominee

In addition to the "Best Chef: Midwest" shutout, neither St. Louis restaurant that was a semifinalist in a national category - Vicia for "Best New Restaurant" and Tony's for "Outstanding Service" - made the final cut. The award goes to chefs in any kind of dining establishment "who have set new or consistent standards of excellence in their respective regions".

San Francisco's Dominique Crenn, of the two-Michelin-star Atelier Crenn, is a finalist for Best Chef in the West.

Considered to be the Oscars of the culinary award, the awards recognize chefs, front of house professionals, restaurateurs, and media in a broad array of categories.

This isn't Christensen's first time being recognized by the James Beard Foundation.

Els, who holds the course record (60) and has won three times at Royal Melbourne, made one thing clear. At the top of the question list was whether either had given any thought to being playing captains.

Other female New Yorkers to be named finalists for the 2018 culinary awards include restaurant designers Amy Morris, Anna Polonsky, Julie Nerenberg, Paulette Cole, Amny Ilias and Maya Nakano.

Brett Anderson's investigation of sexual harassment at the Besh Restaurant Group is a finalist for investigative journalism. Restaurant founders Ella Brennan and the late Dick Brennan were similarly inducted in the industry list earlier.

The nominees for the annual awards were announced on Wednesday.

And of course, José Andrés was this year's recipient of this year's Humanitarian of the Year award. "I was happy to be a part of the ride while it lasted".

Anyone could have predicted that Compère Lapin would be popular when it opened in 2015, at least in the beginning.
