James Beard Finalists Announced

This morning the James Beard Foundation announced the final list of nominees for this year’s awards competition.
It is a disappointing run for Portland this year. While Portland had 3 semifinalists (Sam Hayward from Fore Street for Outstanding Chef, Fore Street for Outstanding Restaurant, and Krista Kern Desjarlais for Best Chef Northeast) none were included in the final list of nominees.
Congratulations to Clark Frasier and Mark Gaier from Arrows in Ogunquit who were nominated in the Best Chef Northeast category.
The award winners will be announced on May 3, 2010 at Avery Fisher Hall in New York City.
