In a city where cuisine is king, it’s no surprise that New Orleans has its fair share of food-related accolades. None of them are quite as brag-worthy as the James Beard Awards. Often referred to as “the Oscars of the food world,” the Beard Awards honor the best of the best in everything from restaurants to pastry chefs, wine and cocktail programs and service.

New Orleans has a number of wins already on our trophy shelf, but the announcement of the 2017 semifinalists means that list very well might be growing.

Stay tuned to see who from the list makes it to the next round of finalists (announced March 15). And in the meantime, be sure to check out all of this year’s semifinalists for dining (or drinking) experiences to get a taste of some of NOLA’s most exciting culinary stars.
