Chef Hugh and Chef Linton

The James Beard Foundation held their annual awards this evening in a glittering event at Avery Fisher Hall (Lincoln Center) in NY City.

Two of Atlanta's premier Chefs walked away in a tie for The Best Chef (Southeast) awards...Hugh Acheson (Chef/Owner of Empire State South, Five and Ten, The National) and Linton Hopkins (Chef/Owner of Restaurant Eugene and Holman and Finch). It was Chef Linton's 5th nomination and Chef Hugh's 6th and I'm sure both men were relieved to finally walk away with the prize. I hope the share did not diminish their win.

Congratulations Chef Linton and Chef Hugh! A spectacular, well deserved achievement.
