Gentlemen, Start Your Engines!

Chef Stephan Pyles

The race is on for the 2011 James Beard Awards.  This Oscar of the food and wine world hasn’t been awarded to anyone in these parts for as long as memory serves.  Lots of nominations–particularly Sharon Hage of the dearly departed York Street–but no coveted Beard Award for the home boys and girls in a long time.  Well, hope springs eternal, and we are rooting mightily for some very strong local contenders who have been nominated–as semi-finalists for the 2011 Awards:

Stephan Pyles for “Outstanding Chef”, The Mansion Restaurant at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek for “Outstanding Restaurant”, and The Four Seasons Las Colinas for “Outstanding Wine Service” under the direction of James Tidwell, M.S.  These three awards are the “big dogs” of the competition.  They are selected from top chefs and restaurants all across America. A regional nomination for “Best Chef: Southwest” goes to Teiichi Sakurai for his outstanding work at Tei-An.

Congratulations to all for the well-deserved recognition.  In my book, they all belong in the finals.  The long list of semi-finalists will be pared down by a secret panel of judges from across the country on March 21st. You can see all the contenders at the James Beard website.  The winners will be announced at a gala ceremony in Lincoln Center New York on May 9th.  Let the nail biting begin!  Take it from one who has been through the process (1999 James Beard nomination for “Viking Range Best Radio Show on Food” for the KRLD Restaurant Show with Jim White), it’s nerve-racking.  Both waiting to find out and the awards ceremony.  We found the audience a bit boorish.  They literally booed nominees who weren’t from New York!  Well, hopefully the folks in attendance for the 2011 ceremony will have better manners, and Stephan, James, Bruno Davillion (Executive Chef of the Mansion Restaurant), and “Teiich” will all get to give acceptance speeches!

We are honored to have Stephan and Bruno with us at Savor Dallas March 18-19.  Stephan is doing a special cooking class and lunch at his eponymous Arts District restaurant, and also joins us at the International Grand Tasting along with Bruno. Stephan’s lunch will definitely sell-out so get your tickets now!  Click here for more information.
