Most recently Michael Solomonov was nominated as Outstanding Chef for his work at Zahav in 2017.

Former Madison Chef Justin Carlisle, who owns the intimate restaurant Ardent on Milwaukee's East Side, has made it into the final round of the James Beard Awards again this year for the third time in a row. Gerard Craft of Niche won "Best Chef: Midwest" in 2015, and Kevin Nashan of Sidney Street Cafe took the same award past year.

Locally, the most competitive category is Best Chef Mid-Atlantic, where Centrolina's Amy Brandwein, Bad Saint's Tom Cunanan, and The Dabney's Jeremiah Langhorne are all vying for the title-alongside Baltimore's Cindy Wolf = and Richard Landau of Vedge in Philadelphia (and soon, Fancy Radish in DC).

Considered to be the Oscars of the culinary award, the awards recognize chefs, front of house professionals, restaurateurs, and media in a broad array of categories.
