Throw Another Award on the Grill

Add to the two James Beard Awards won by Twin Cities locals with Best Chef Midwest winner Alex Roberts of Restaurant Alma!

Restaurant Alma is a leader in the sense of offering clean, simple food done really, really well. The spartan restaurant keeps the focus on the food.

Last year’s winner, Tim McKee of La Belle Vie, was the first chef of the Twin Cities to win and with a second win, perhaps we’ll become a destination for foodies.

And congratulations to Wayne Kostroski, founder of the Taste of the NFL, for being awarded the James Beard Humantarian of the Year Award, which is awarded to an individual or organization whose work in the
realm of food has improved the lives of others and benefited society at large.
