The chef and restaurant awards will be handed out tonight by the James Beard Foundation in New York City. The media portion was held last night (check the results here).
McCrady's Chef Sean Brock returns to compete for the third year in a row, this time for the Best Chef Southeast award, which FIG Chef Mike Lata and Hominy Grill's Robert Stehling have brought home the last two years. How likely is it that Charleston will get this award again?
That's hard to say, since Brock is competing against fellow multiple nominees and Southern Foodway darlings Hugh Acheson and Linton Hopkins. Surely some tough competition.
In the meantime, send your good vibes to Sean Brock.
