“To be honest, that was exciting enough, just to be involved with the long list. Then when it happened, getting on the short list was amazing. You meet all these James Beard nominated chefs, and at least for me I never pictured myself as that person — then all of a sudden your restaurant is named and it feels like you’re doing something right. It’s been an amazing ride.” — Evan Rich talking to Hayeswire about the night, when he and wife and co-chef Sarah Rich were in India, when they heard the news that Rich Table was nominated for a James Beard Award. They’ll be off to New York this weekend to attend the awards on Monday. See all the local nominees here. [Hayeswire]
