Charleston has six chances to claim a James Beard Foundation award winner this year.
Four chefs and two restaurants were named semifinalists for the 2013 awards, which highlight achievements in the food and beverage industry.
Chef Jeremiah Bacon of The Macintosh, chef Craig Deihl of Cypress and chef Joshua Keeler of Two Boroughs Larder were all named semifinalists for the title of Best Chef Southeast. Chef Sean Brock of McCrady’s has a chance at being named Outstanding Chef.
Last year, four Charleston chefs were named semifinalists, but none took home awards. The city most recently claimed an award when Sean Brock won Best Chef Southeast in 2010.
