Awards Watch: Dan Kluger, where were you when…?

Dan Kluger, chef of Best New Restaurant winner ABC Kitchen, told us he had a good feeling that they would be nominated, but had no idea that they would come up big tonight: “We had a good feeling about it. It was a Monday, my day off, so I was home and had decided to try to follow the announcements on Twitter. I started receiving a lot of nice congratulatory emails. We hoped for something like this, but you can never expect it. It’s amazing to be nominated.” Congratulations, Dan! And to all the nominees and winners tonight!

Sweet and savory steamed Thai rice cakes in three flavors: cantaloupe, banana with durian, and pumpkin with shallots. We asked his team how they tame smelly durian fruit. "Enough banana and sugar is all it takes," they said.

Foodspotting: Mr. Keller Inspires More Shoe Pics!

Amped is the only way to describe how I currently feel after briefly talking to the legendary Thomas Keller. You already know what he looks like, but what was most interesting to us was that he looked especially dashing with his fabulous shoes, upon which were inscribed the words "Death" and "Glory." Definitely did not expect that!  ~Fiona

Awards Watch: Matt Jennings, where were you when…?

Matt Jennings of La Laiterie in Providence was headed back from a sourcing trip to Vermont with his staff when they got the news that he was nominated for Best Chef: Northeast: “So there we were, in northern New Hampshire, in a big rented van that smelled like wet farm animal, with glass bottles of maple syrup clanking around in the back and the crew singing along to “Bennie and the Jets,” when all of a sudden, we came within cell phone range and all of our phones started bleeping and blinging. Text messages arrived from other staff, friends, and family, and we logged onto Twitter to discover it was true—we had made the final cut! We were temped to pull over to the nearest bar for a quick shot, but we were still about a three-hour drive from home!”
