It's Sunday evening, and the James Beard Awards—aka the "Oscars of Food"—are upon us. Delfina's Craig Stoll has already taken the award for Best Chef: Pacific, beating out fellow locals David Kinch (Manresa), Douglas Keane (Cyrus) and Michael Tusk (Quince). Eater NY is currently liveblogging the entire shindig straight from the scene, and the big awards (New Restaurant, Outstanding Restaurant, etc.) are still forthcoming, so do head on over to see if Charles Phan or Nancy Oakes shall be coming home with a medal.
