Here Are the DC-Area Finalists for the 2018 James Beard Awards

Brad Kilgore, chef and co-owner of Alter, in Wynwood, has been named one of six finalists for the James Beard Foundation's award for Best Chef: South, the committee announced Wednesday.

Locally, the most competitive category is Best Chef Mid-Atlantic, where Centrolina's Amy Brandwein, Bad Saint's Tom Cunanan, and The Dabney's Jeremiah Langhorne are all vying for the title-alongside Baltimore's Cindy Wolf = and Richard Landau of Vedge in Philadelphia (and soon, Fancy Radish in DC).

This is McHugh's third nomination for the award, considered the US food industry's highest honor.

The James Beard Foundation, which oversees the awards program, also announced that it will induct Commander's Palace proprietors Lally Brennan and Ti Adelaide Martin into its Who's Who of Food & Beverage in America.

This is Karen Bell's first James Beard nomination for her contemporary cafe and butcher shop, Bavette La Boucherie, which offers sustainable and local meats prepared lovingly for their daily menu and for sale.
