Finalists for the James Beard Foundation Awards, the highest honors in the food world, were announced this morning, and St. Louis’ own Gerard Craft is among them. Craft, chef and owner of Niche Restaurant in Benton Park, will vie for the title of Best Chef in the Midwest, with the winner to be announced at an awards gala on May 4 at Lincoln Center in New York.

Semifinalists also included Monarch Restaurant’s Joshua Galliano and Kevin Nashan of Sidney Street Cafe.

And congratulations to Kristen Hinman of the Riverfront Times, who was nominated for a James Beard Foundation Journalism Award in the Newspaper Feature Writing Without Recipes category. Hinman got the nod for her feature article The Pope of Pork, which ran in the paper last November.

    Wow. I’m not surprised, but they picked the wrong guy. Gerard gets all the press, but Josh is in another league. Oh well….I guess that’s what high dollar PR does for you. Congrats to Gerard and Niche.

    High dollar PR? I’m curious what firm they use.

    Whether it’s Gerard, Josh, Kevin, Jimmy, or anyone else, I’m ecstatic that STL continues to get play on the national level for the dining scene.

    Congratulations to all the folks at Niche.
