We’re tired of Los Angeles being ignored for the major (East Coast) food accolades. Really, really tired. For 2013, we’re sponsoring a Rock the Beard vote drive, starting right now. Ari Taymor (Alma), Nyesha Arrington (Wilshire Restaurant) and Giselle Wellman (Petrossian Paris) all want to be nominated. No one wins without being nominated, so log into JBF’s website and type in a few strokes. Do it for LA. We don’t just need the best food critic, we want our chefs to be winners. [JBF]
