Jose Andres won a James Beard Award. Not really a big surprise.
If you know anything about DC restaurants (he dominates with Oyamel, Jaleo, Zaytinya and Cafe Atlantico/Mini Bar…my dream restaurant) you probably saw it coming. Most food writers use the James Beard awards as a list of the who’s who and the up and comings of the food world…but i haven’t really decided if i myself will measure a chef by weather or not he has a JB award. Anthony Bourdain for one, doesn’t trust the association. Just a thought.
Anywayyyyy, i’m just really jealous i’m not in DC right now because Andres is at Zaytinya celebrating and i would probably faint if i were ever in the same room as him.
