2008 James Beard Award Finalists Announced



The finalists for this year's James Beard Awards have been announced. Full list is available right here. Unfortunately, none of the St. Louis chefs on the long list made the final cut.

Congrats to Jason Sheehan, the incredible restaurant critic at Westword, the RFT's sister paper in Denver, for his nomination in the restaurant criticism category.
