Outstanding Chefs Recognized

Three Richmond chefs were nominated for the 2015 James Beard Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic award

Posted By on Wed, Feb 18, 2015 at 12:49 PM

Three Richmond chefs were named semi-finalists for the James Beard Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic award today: Peter Chang of Peter Chang China Café, Lee Gregory of the Roosevelt and Southbound, and Acacia Mid-town’s Dale Reitzer.

This makes the fourth nomination for Reitzer, the third for Gregory, and it's Chang's first nomination, although he's been invited cook at the James Beard House in New York twice. It's pretty exciting stuff for the local dining scene. This makes 2015 the first year that three chefs from the Richmond area have all been nominated at the same time.
