Winners of the James Beard Foundation's Restaurant and Chef Awards

Last night, the James Beard Foundation's winner's list was completed--the media awards were over the weekend and listed here yesterday. In addition to major excitement over the first ever Outstanding Bar Program award other highlights included a tie for Best Chef Southeast (a hot dining destination region this year) between the formerly uni-browed Top Chef Masters contestant Hugh Acheson and Restaurant Eugene's Linton Hopkins. Michael Anthony of Gramercy Tavern took home the home turf gold. Congratulations to all of the winners!
