Posted By on Thu, Feb 17, 2011 at 2:04 PM


The James Beard Foundation has just announced its list of Semifinalists for this year's Beard Awards, to be held in New York on May 9. As usual, Cleveland-area chefs and restaurants fareed well. The final list of nominees will be released on March 21.

Michael Symon racked up multiple nominations in the categories of Outstanding Chef and Outstanding Restaurant (Lola).

Jonathon Sawyer from Greenhouse Tavern is in the running for the much-coveted Rising Star Chef.

Both Zack Bruell (Parallax, Chinato, L'Albatros) and Eric Williams (Momocho) are in the running for Best Chef: Great Lakes Region.

And Cory Barrett, former Lola pastry chef, is nominated for Outstanding Pastry Chef for his work at Symon's restaurants. — Douglas Trattner
