Three Orlando-Area Chefs Are James Beard Award Nominees

Chefs of three Central Florida restaurants are up for the James Beard Foundation's Best Chef: South award for 2014. They've all been nominated before, as have some others, who didn't make the list this year. No one from the area has yet snagged the actual title, or others like Best New Restaurant or Outstanding Bar Program.

Here's a hearty congratulations to the nominees:

James and Julie Petrakis, The Ravenous Pig and Cask & Larder, Winter Park


Henry Salgado, Spanish River Grill, New Smyrna Beach, and the soon-to-open Txokos, Orlando
Best of luck at the awards ceremony in May, chefs.
Eat enthusiastically,
