James Beard Nominees
It’s that time of year again, when the James Beard Awards are announced. Like the Oscars, it’s an honor just to be nominated, and so we salute the St. Louis chefs who earned that recognition. Previous nominees Kevin Nashan of Sidney Street Café (2000 Sidney St., 314.771.5777 in Benton Park) and Kevin Willman of Farmhaus (3257 Ivanhoe Ave., 31.647.3800 in southwest St. Louis) were joined by Olive & Oak’s Jesse Mendica (102 W. Lockwood Ave., 314.736.1370, in Webster Groves) and
Publico’s Mike Randolph (6679 Delmar Blvd., 314833.5780, in The Loop), whose Mexican-accented octopus is shown here. Needless to say, the nomination is a clear signal that you’re in for an exceptional dining experience. Enjoy!
