    Other than the Great Lakes category, which was won by Fat Rice's Abe Conlon, Chicago noms didn't fare too well at tonight's awards . . .

    Chicago chefs, restaurants lose out at James Beard Foundation Awards

    Oh, and there was this . . .

    The James Beard Foundation is shaking up its restaurant award regions, carving the country into new territories to better reflect shifts in population and dining.

    Thattu is a finalist for Best New Restaurant. Considering they are only in a food hall, that's pretty amazing. Their food is great. Congratulations to them and everyone else.

    No Chicago restaurants made the Outstanding Hospitality ballot, but two restaurants in neighboring states did: Hobnob, in Racine, Wisconsin, and Love Handle, in Indianapolis.

    Hobnob on the list, that is pretty cool!

    There will be no James Beard Awards handed out to outstanding chefs and restaurants this year. After first committing to a virtual ceremony last month, instead of the usual Chicago awards gala, the James Beard Foundation announced today that it will not announce 2020 winners, which would have been chosen from the already-announced list of chef and restaurant awards finalists.

    Just some crazy-ass shit in that piece. I think it probably confirms quite a bit of what many people have felt about the restaurant side of Beards for years (myopic, self-important, self-congratulatory, exclusionary, etc.). Seems like the recent industry reckoning prompted a look in the mirror for tptb behind the Beards -- and provided a perspective many outsiders already had.
