The James Beard Foundation has announced this year’s nominations for its chef, restaurant and media awards in a ceremony Wednesday morning in Houston.
The late Los Angeles Times restaurant critic Jonathan Gold was nominated for the Craig Claiborne Distinguished Restaurant Review Award. (Gold won four James Beard Awards in his lifetime, as well as the Pulitzer Prize for criticism.) Bill Addison, now a critic at the L.A. Times, was nominated in the same category for his work at Eater. And the nominations for the first Jonathan Gold Local Voice Award, established last year in his honor, were also announced.
