March 19, 2012


It's a big day for JBF! In addition to debuting our new look here at, we're also revealing nominations for the 2012 James Beard Awards. That means that there are only a few hours left before you find out who will be getting nods for our various Restaurant and Chef; Book; Broadcast Media; Journalism; and Restaurant Design and Graphics awards. If you need a refresher on who made our long list of semifinalists, you can see the full list here.

We have a tradition of announcing the nominations in a different major city every year. This year JBF's top brass has assembled in Las Vegas, where they will begin announcing the nominations at the Venetian/the Palazzo at 11:00 PST/2:00 EST. If you want to watch the fun in Sin City, head over to Eater's National edition for a live feed. We will also be revealing the nominations in real time on our Twitter page (use #jbfa to follow along).
