It may only be the beginning of March, but things are heating up at SpringHouse. Chef Rob McDaniel is once again in the running for one of the nation’s top culinary honors, and now, you can enjoy a three-course meal on a weeknight (Wednesday and Thursday) for only $40!
Could the fifth time be the charm?
The James Beard Foundation has once again nominated Chef Rob McDaniel of SpringHouse for their Best Chef: South Award. The nomination places him in a group of 20 semifinalists and some respectable competition. As one might expect, the culinary mecca of New Orleans is well represented with five nominees, but, maybe more surprising, four of this year’s semifinalists were chosen from Alabama. This is the fifth year in a row that Chef Rob has been recognized with this James Beard nomination. View the press release from JBF for the full list of nominees.
On Wednesday, March 15, 2017, the Foundation will announce the finalists for all award categories during a press conference at a.o.c. restaurant in Los Angeles, California. Nominations will also be announced live via the Foundation’s Facebook Live video feed at facebook.com/beardfoundation and in real time on Twitter at twitter.com/beardfoundation.
Restaurant and Chef award winners will be announced at the James Beard Foundation Awards Gala at the Lyric Opera of Chicago on Monday, May 1, 2017. Best of luck, Chef Rob!
