So finally, the James Beard Awards recognize Philadelphia. Stephen Starr, after years as a runner-up, wins best restaurateur. Michael Solomonov snags best chef in the US. Vernick gets best chef Mid-Atlantic. Dogfish Head is the best brewery. It’s about time.
All kudos to Solomonov and Vernick (I’m not so wild about Starr).
But sorry Philly, you cannot claim Sam Calagione…he is DELAWARE’s
Close enough. I had a Dog Fish IPA yesterday and it was good!
