Bavette La Boucherie in Milwaukee’s Third Ward

Birmingham's Highlands Bar and Grill has been nominated for so many James Beard Foundation Awards that the restaurant is starting to break its own record.

Among the finalists for what's essentially considered the Oscars of the American food world are four Philadelphia-based nominations, including two for modern Israeli restaurant and long-running Society Hill establishment Zahav. This is the seventh time she's made it to the finalist round. For Best Chef Southwest (the region Texas is in), McHugh is joined by Austin's Michael Fojtasek (Olamaie), as well as Bryce Gilmore (Barley Swine), Santa Fe's Martín Rios (Restaurant Martín) and Denver's Alex Seidel (Mercantile Dining & Provision). Brown was nominated as Best Chef: Midwest in 2017, Kaysen and Kim are newcomers to the list of finalists. Yin was among the semifinalists for the same award in 2017 as well.

Champions League Exit 'Nothing New For Man Utd' - Mourinho
In addition, they labelled United's performance "little football from Mourinho, ' in contrast to Ben Yedder's 'big" performance. The Red Devils were beaten 2-0 at home by Sevilla in the last-16 round, courtesy of two goals from Yassin Ben Yedder.

While the District dominates the category for Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic, representation is absent from many categories, including Best New Restaurant, Outstanding Baker, Outstanding Bar Program and Outstanding Chef. Landau was nominated in the same category past year. Both were finalists for this award a year ago.

Zahav is nominated for Outstanding Service, though this is far from the restaurant's first James Beard recognition. Landau co-owns the restaurant with wife Kate Jacoby.
