Two Connecticut chefs have been nominated as semifinalists for the James Beard Foundation's annual awards in the Best Chef: Northeast Category. Nominated for the Best Chef: Midwest category. In the Southwest, metro Phoenix chefs earned three nods. The next big date to watch is March 14, when the foundation announces the finalist list.

Additionally, Paul and Joe Bartolotta, owners of The Bartolotta Restaurants have been nominated for Outstanding Restaurateur.

Chef Chris Kajioka, left, and Chef Ed Kenney are semifinalists in the category of best chef in the western region, which also includes California and Nevada. All of the Valley's nominees have been named semifinalists multiple times before. It's tricky for the Foundation to navigate talking about this.

This year he's joined by Thomas Lents for his work at his chef's table at the Apparatus Room inside the new Detroit Foundation Hotel which opened in May, at 250 W. Larned. "And in turn, the committee reps asked the judges to do the same".

The #MeToo movement has come into play. The event will take place at 9:30 a.m. EST and will be streamed live online.

The James Beard Foundation Awards Gala will be held at the Lyric Opera of Chicago on Monday, May 7, 2018 where the winners will be announced.

"When considering the candidacy of a person or restaurant, bear in mind that award winners are held up as role models". It was among San Antonio Magazine's Best New Restaurants in 2014. Award description: A chef or baker who prepares desserts, pastries, or breads in a restaurant, and who serves as a national standard bearer of excellence.

Twenty restaurants were nominated in the "Outstanding Restaurant" category, but no other Wisconsin restaurants are represented. And Oakland's Reem Assil (Reem's) and Preeti Mistry (Juhu Beach Club) were both nominated for best chef in the west, covering California, Hawaii, and Nevada.
