WASHINGTON, DC — Seven Virginia and 20 Washington, D.C., restaurants and some of their critically acclaimed chefs and bakers are vying for top honors in one of the nation's most respected food competitions.

The prestigious Restaurant and Chef Award semifinalists represent a wide range of culinary talent, from exceptional chefs and dining destinations nationally and across 10 different regions. The 21 award categories include best new restaurants, outstanding bars, outstanding bakers and rising star chefs 30 years of age or younger.
