Two STL Chefs Semifinalists for James Beard Best Chef Midwest
Congratulations are in order for local chefs Kevin Nashan of Sidney Street Cafe and Gerard Craft of Craft Restaurants Ltd. They’ve gotten the nod as semifinalists in the Best Chef, Midwest category from the James Beard Foundation. Semifinalists find out on Monday, March 18, if they’ll be moving on to the finals. James Beard Award winners will be announced at a swank awards ceremony on Monday, May 6, at Lincoln Center in NYC. Both Nashan and Craft have been nominated multiple times in this category over the years, so here’s hoping in 2013 one of them takes home the trophy!
