The James Beard Awards, handed out by the … James Beard Foundation (shocking I know), are the most prestigious culinary awards this country has to offer. The annual event concluded just a short while ago … and the winners have been announced. Amongst some of the notable awards … Marea in NYC won for the all to important title of Best New Restaurant, while Daniel Boulud’s flagship Daniel scored Restaurant of the Year.
For those of us in the dirty south, our hopes of really making head waves went unanswered. Not surprisingly, Sean Brock of McCrady’s in Charleston, S.C. won for Best Chef in the Southeast Region.
