UPDATE 5/09/11: The award ceremony is now finished. We have posted the winners on our James Beard Foundation Awards page. Congratulations to all the winners (and the nominees)!
 Food is vital to all us. Since it is an absolute necessity, we might as well make it taste good, whether it is served at a temple of haute gastronomy or a more casual and affordable place. In the tough competitive world of restaurants, when honors are awarded, it can bring them even more business and more accolades.
  Therefore, restaurateurs, chefs and savvy diners look forward to our Annual Restaurant Issue that includes awards such as the Top 40 Restaurants in the U.S., the Top 10 New Restaurants in the U.S. and many more. They also check out other restaurant honors like the S.Pellegrino Top 50 Restaurants in the World and the James Beard Foundation Awards. On Monday, May 9th, 2011, during the annual Awards Ceremony & Gala Reception to be held at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall in New York, the James Beard winners will be announced. You can see the nominees — and soon, the winners — on our special 2011 James Beard Foundation Awards page. Please watch my exclusive video interview with James Beard Foundation’s vice president Mitchell Davis, and good luck to all the nominees who make the world taste better.
