2024 James Beard Award Finalists in New York City

2024 James Beard Award Finalists in New York City

The James Beard Foundation announced this year List of semi-finalists for the 2024 Annual Food Awards in January, followed, a month later, by New York's selection for Best Food Classic America Distinction, Sylvia, Harlem Foundation. Now, today, the list of finalists has arrived, including chefs from Qunu, Sufra and Harana Market upstate.

Winners will be announced at a ceremony in Chicago this year on June 10 (winners will also be announced). Live broadcast.)

There was a lot riding on this year's New York Awards in particular: In 2023, no New York chef took home an award in the national categories, a snub that has never happened since the award's inception in 1991. And for 2024, that trend remains. . No New York restaurant is nominated for Best New Restaurant, although places like Foul Witch and Foxface Natural made it to the semifinals. Superiority Burger, which is classified under a separate category of premium restaurants, also did not make the list. Outstanding Bar, which was being considered for Double Chicken Please and All Night Skate, did not advance to the next round. New York doesn't get the super chef or pastry chef nod. New York also didn't get national recognition for its outstanding restaurant scene – Brian Chonton, Pee Wee (of Zap Zap and Zap Zap Talay) and Ravi Derosi, both made it to the semifinals.

In 2021, the institution has subjected itself to internal auditIt aims to identify better ways to make the decision-making process more equitable. However, the food world's Oscars continued to make headlines, when a chef won last year It was excluded category, while another was investigated due to posts published on her site Personal social media.
