The prestigious national James Beard Awards recognizing culinary excellence have once again focused on Las Vegas, as a handful of local chefs were named as semifinalists. Nominees advancing as finalists will be announced April 3 and winners will be celebrated at the annual awards ceremony June 10 at the Lyric Opera in Chicago.

Oscar Amador Edo, a finalist last year in the Best Chef: Southwest category, is a semifinalist in the overall Outstanding Chef category for his creative work at Anima by Edo. And the pop-up bakery operation Milkfish propelled Kimmie and Josh Mcintosh into the overall Outstanding Pastry Shop or Bakery category as joint semifinalists.

Three Southern Nevadans placed in Best Chef: Southwest this year—Brian Howard of Sparrow + Wolf, DJ Flores of Milpa, and Steve Kestler of Aroma Latin American Cocina.
