New, 2 comments

Today, at an event out in Portland hosting the who's who of the...Portland food scene, the James Beard Foundation announced the final nominees for the 2011 James Beard Awards. The award show and gala will take place in New York City on May 9, and as usual, we'll be there live to document the goings on.
