Vote: Food & Wine People's Best New Chef
In a move that hands over power to the people, Food & Wine has announced a nationwide competition for the title of The People's Best New Chef. Like the magazine's coveted annual Best New Chef awards, this new honor recognizes the most talented up-and-coming chefs in the country.
Diners can vote on 100 chefs from 10 regions. Representing the Mid-Atlantic region, four chefs are from the DC area: Kyle Bailey of Birch & Barley, Dan Giusti of 1789, David Guas of Bayou Bakery and Nicholas Stefanelli of Bibiana. (Disclosure: I report for Food & Wine.)
You can vote until March 1 on CNN's Eatocracy, when the top vote-getter will be named the People's Best New Chef. Who do you think deserves the title?
