James Beard Awards Update

The Best Chef, Midwest category has been narrowed down to Isaac Becker (112 Eatery), Tim McKee (La Belle Vie), Alexander Roberts (Alma), Gerard Craft (of Niche in St. Louis, MO) and Colby Garrelts (of Bluestem in Kansas City, MO). Breitbach’s Country Dining (of Sherrill, IA) gets an America’s Classic Award.

    Narrowed down? Is that normal (i.e. do they typically release the names of several more nominees and then over time reduce that list)?
