Raku and Las Vegas Shortlisted for James Beard Awards (Best Chef -- Southwest)

Dave Feldman | Feb 17, 201101:24 PM

This year, these are the only two chefs from Las Vegas shortlisted. Congratulations to Mitsuo Endo and Saipin Chutima. These awards are inherently silly in some ways, but I'm so pleased that two independent, non-Strip chefs have been honored.

Picasso was shortlisted as "Outstanding Restaurant," a national award, and China Poblano for best new restaurant, and Robert Smith at Picasso for Wine Service.
