Redzikowski, Seidel & Skokan on 2017 list.
The James Beard Foundation released its list of semi-finalists for its 2017 James Beard Award. Three Colorado chefs — all from the Front Range — are in the running for Best Chef, Southwest recognition:
- Steve Redzikowski. Acorn, Denver. He also is with Oak on Fourteenth in Boulder.
- Alex Seidel. Mercantile, Denver. Also, Denver’s Fruition, which just celebrated its 10th anniversary.
- Eric Skokan. Black Cat. Also, Bramble & Hare, just next door in Boulder.
Also, Boulder’s Frasca Food and Wine was nominated as an Outstanding Restaurant. Not the first time, I believe.
