James Beard Awards 2010 semifinalists announced

The James Beard Foundation today announced a long list of semifinalists for the 2010 James Beard Awards in 19 restaurant and chef categories. This represents the first cut before the final five nominees get the nod March 22. On that date, the James Beard Foundation will also announce the final nominees for restaurant design and graphics, books, journalism, broadcast media and special achievement at a private event at the Palace Cafe in New Orleans. Winners will be feted May 3 at the annual awards ceremony and gala reception at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall in NYC. Congratulations to our local semifinalists.
