Sadly, we don’t have any Maine Beard Awards wins to report on this morning, but with five nominees and 20+ chefs, bakes, staff and owners at the event Maine was very well represented at the awards. No doubt there will be more opportunity for Maine to shine in 2023.
In the meantime if you see any of the 2022 congratulate them on the recognition of excellence that already represents:
- Best New Restaurant – Leeward
- Outstanding Baker – Atsuko Fujimoto, Norimoto Bakery
- Best Chef: Northeast – Vien Dobui, Công Tử Bột; Courtney Loreg, Woodford Food & Beverage; Damian Sansonetti, Chaval
