Better Luck Next Year

The James Beard Foundation did not smile on any of its Boston-based nominees this year, awarding the Best Chef Northeast to chef Jean Louis Gerin of Jean-Louis in Greenwich, Connecticut. The Monday evening awards ceremony sent chefs Michael Leviton of Lumière, Marc Orfaly of Pigalle and Marco, and Frank McClelland of L’Espalier back to Beantown empty-handed. Chefs Clark Frasier and Mark Gaier of Arrows made the trip back to Ogunquit, Maine sans top honors for the third time in as many years. Congratulations to Gerin and all of this year’s award winners.
