North Carolina chefs among James Beard nominees

Bavette La Boucherie in Milwaukee’s Third Ward

The finalists for the 2018 James Beard Awards were announced Wednesday morning during a live broadcast streamed from Philadelphia's own Parc Restaurant in Rittenhouse. Yin was among the semifinalists for the same award in 2017 as well. This is the seventh time she's made it to the finalist round.

Zahav is nominated for Outstanding Service, though this is far from the restaurant's first James Beard recognition. Yang has never been nominated in this category, and she is the only Minnesota chef nominated in a national Beard Foundation category.

Post-Dispatch restaurant critic Ian Froeb is a member of the James Beard Awards restaurant and chefs awards committee.

This year's results notwithstanding, St. Louis has enjoyed success at the James Beard Awards in recent years.
