jbfbutthole1.jpgEater HQ has the complete list of Beard Award finalists, and it won't take you long to find all the Philly names among the best of the best. We're pretty sure the Beard Foundation tapped 19 Philly-area chefs and restaurants for the long list just so we would be extra-devastated when the big reveal named but one Philadelphian to make the final round. Now, we're quite proud of Marc Vetri for his Outstanding Restaurant nomination, but he gets one every year (and he deserves them all). How Pierre Calmels and Stephen Starr were shut out altogether in their respective categories is beyond us, and the last time we felt this used the other person at least bought us dinner. [~EN~]
