The James Beard Awards are among the most prestigious of recognitions in the culinary world. It is considered an enormous honor just to be nominated. The list of 2018 nominations was recently announced and, like most years, it’s no big surprise that Northern California is representing.

The award ceremony takes place on May 7, 2018 at the Lyric Opera of Chicago.  We wanted to take a minute to congratulate this year’s Bay Area nominees. Plus, consider this your go-to list for upcoming dinner reservations!
