What an unexpected delight, in our 9th year, to be named a semifinalist for the James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Restaurant in the United States.
While Chef Andy has been nominated under the Best Chef: Great Lakes category and he has always considered those team awards, this is the first time the Foundation has honored our restaurant in this way. We certainly try to keep our focus on each service, each day, but it’s hard not to take a moment to reflect on some serious national recognition.
We were excited to see that the James Beard Foundation chose to recognize more than a dozen chefs and restaurants in Southeast Michigan.
So congrats to our entire team on the honor — and congratulations, too, to those many other Detroit area chefs and restaurants who garnered JBF nods.
