Quick Hits: James Beard Semifinalists Announced

February 18, 2010

Under the theory that being first is more important than being thorough (and to atone for my prior attempt to beat everyone to the punch), the semifinalists for the James Beard Awards have been announced

Representing the 305:

Outstanding Restauranteur nominee: Myles Chefetz

Rising Star Chef of the Year nominee: Sam Gorenstein (BLT Steak)

Best New Restaurant nominees: Eos @ Viceroy, Solea @ The W Hotel

Outstanding Pastry Chef nominee: Hedy Goldsmith (MGFD)

Best Chef: South Region nominee: Phillipe Ruiz (Palme D’Or), Michael Schwartz (MGFD), Kris Wessel (Red Light)

Dean James Max also nominated for Best Chef: South Region (but he’s a Ft. Lauderdale guy).

Congratulations semifinalists.
