Tandy Wilson of City House Advances to Finals for Best Chef Southeast in James Beard Awards

Posted By on Mon, Mar 18, 2013 at 12:19 PM

The James Beard Foundation has named Tandy Wilson of City House as a finalist for its award for Best Chef Southeast. And Sean Brock, who is working to open Husk Nashville later this year, is a finalist in the national category of Outstanding Chef.

(Two other Nashvillians had been named semifinalists in the Southeast category in February — Margot McCormack of Margot Café & Bar, and Tyler Brown of Capitol Grille. Lockeland Table, chef Hal Holden-Bache's place in East Nashville, got a prestigious nod as semifinalist in the national Best New Restaurant category but didn't advance.)

At the announcement ceremony today in New York, the foundation repeated the previously announced honorees for its America's Classics awards, which include Andre Prince Gregory's venerable Prince's Hot Chicken Shack in Nashville. Prince's and the other America's Classics honorees will be celebrated at the James Beard awards gala in May.

Other seminfinalists in the Southeast category: Ashley Christensen of Poole’s Downtown Diner in Raleigh, N.C.; Edward Lee of 610 Magnolia in Louisville, Ky.; Joseph Lenn of The Barn at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tenn.; and Steven Satterfield of Miller Union in Atlanta.
