We told you last week about the poll Food & Wine was doing, in conjunction with their Best New Pastry Chefs issue due out in April, to find the “People’s Best New Pastry Chef.” Well, the votes are in, and though we don’t yet know who the overall winner was, Fifth Floor’s Francis Ang took home the most votes in the western region. (See his almond beignets in our new-desserts slideshow from last week.) He now stands a good chance at getting a national write-up in the issue when it comes out. Congrats, Francis. [Food & Wine]
