Are those tears in my eyes? OK -- theyr'e not, but I feel like I might cry because the semi-finalists for the James Beard Awards were announced and three of our very own Top Chefs were nominated!!! The illustrious Mr. Tom Colicchio for "Outsanding Chef" for Craft, Bryan Voltaggio for "Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic" for VOLT, and Kevin Gillespie for "Rising Star Chef of the Year." I/we could not be more proud of these three -- the nominations are so well-deserved. Leave your best wishes for the chefs in the Comments section below, won't you?
