James Beard Foundation Announces 2013 Chef and Restaurant Award Semifinalists

Hollywood has the Oscars. The food world has the James Beard Awards.

The annual ceremony that recognizes both outstanding and upcoming talent in the restaurant industry has just announced its 2013 crop of semifinalists. The current (incredibly long) list will be narrowed down to finalists on Monday, March 18. The chef and restaurant winners will then be awarded on Monday, May 6, during a celebration at Avery Fisher Hall.

Empellon Cocina and Thirty Acres will compete for Best New Restaurant, while The Bar at The NoMad seeks the award for Best Bar Program. Unsurprisingly, Danny Bowien (Mission Chinese) made the list for Rising Star Chef of the Year.

Also worth noting, New York City has its own category dedicated to outstanding chefs. And while Manhattan clearly dominates that section of the list, the borough bows to Brooklyn for nominations in other categories (Best New Restaurant; Outstanding Wine Program). See who made the first cut below.

BEST CHEF: NYC April Bloomfield, The Spotted Pig Marco Canora, Hearth Wylie Dufresne, wd~50 Sara Jenkins, Porsena Dan Kluger, ABC Kitchen Mark Ladner, Del Posto Paul Liebrandt, Corton Anita Lo, Annisa George Mendes, Aldea Carlo Mirarchi, Roberta's Seamus Mullen, Tertulia Joe Ng, RedFarm Alex Raij and Eder Montero, Txikito Cesar Ramirez, Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare Sean Rembold, Diner Masato Shimizu, 15 East Alex Stupak, Empellón Cocina Rich Torrisi and Mario Carbone, Torrisi Italian Specialties Jonathan Waxman, Barbuto Michael White, Marea
