Today, the 2019 James Beard Awards Restaurant and Chef Semifinalists were announced and two Cleveland names made the list. Jeremy Umansky's Larder Delicatessen (1455 W. 29th St., 216-912-8203) earned a spot in the Best New Restaurant category.

"I'm completely shocked," Umansky said soon after learning the news.

He joins Jill Vedaa, chef-owner of Salt in Lakewood, on the list, with Vedaa earning a spot in the Best Chefs: Great Lakes Region category for the second year in a row.

On Wednesday, March 27, this lengthy list of semifinalists will be whittled down to a much more competitive list of finalists. Those finalists will learn their fate at the big James Beard Awards Gala in Chicago on Monday, May 6.

We'll follow up with this story on March 27.
