It's official: Linton Hopkins and Hugh Acheson nominated for best chef in Southeast
A while back I reported that some local chefs had made the initial list of potential James Beard nominees (see here). James Beard has just announced the final list of nominees for this year's awards, and Atlanta's Linton Hopkins (Restaurant Eugene) and Athens' Hugh Acheson (Five and Ten) made the cut for Best Chef in the Southeast. Congrats, guys!
I love to see Atlanta getting culinary attention, but hoping one of these days we can get a restaurant on the national best restaurant or best chef list.
