Mozza’s Nancy Silverton, Cronut Inventor Win James Beard Awards

Pizzeria Mozza’s Nancy Silverton took the Outstanding Chef in the U.S. award at the James Beard Foundation Restaurant and Chef Awards Monday in New York. The La Brea Bakery founder was also the co-owner of popular industry lunch spot Campanile. It was the first time since Wolfgang Puck’s 1998 win that a Los Angeles chef won the honor.

The Outstanding Restaurant of the U.S. award went to San Francisco’s innovative Vietnamese restaurant Slanted Door, owned by Charles Phan.

The Spotted Pig’s April Bloomfield won the best chef in New York City award, while San Francisco’s Daniel Patterson of Coi won the best chef in the West. Cronut inventor Dominique Ansel won the Outstanding Pastry Chef award, while Peche Seafood Grill in New Orleans won best new restaurant.

Meanwhile, former Wolfgang Puck pastry chef Sherry Yard, who recently joined the food operations at Westwood’s new iPic Theaters, was one of several writers and chefs who joined James Beard Foundation’s Who’s Who of Food and Beverage list.
