The James Beard Awards has named its 2017 finalists, and — as per usual — the New York City inclusions are many. Varying from best new restaurant to outstanding service to design icon, NYC reps hard on the list. Considering the James Beard Awards are an industry standard-bearer in the awards department, it is an honor just to be nominated, and 21 area establishments have already made it this far.
To make your life easier, here is the full list of local nominees, mapped out for dining convenience, as well as contextualized. The winners will be announced on Monday, May 1 at the James Beard Awards Gala at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, at which time we will update this map. May the odds be ever in their favor.
