Drum roll, please: The Eater Young Guns 2014 semi-finalists have just been announced. Every year, Eater awards Young Guns status to up-and-coming talent working in the restaurant world, including restaurateurs, chefs, line cooks, bartenders, and maître d's.
After months of poring over more than 2,300 nominations, 50 contenders showing extraordinary promise from around the United States and Canada have been hand-picked by Eater's official selection committee; each nominee is either under 30 or has worked in their field for less than five years.
Representing for Seattle:
· Lieu Hoang, Sous Chef, Brimmer & Heeltap
· Josh Nebe, Cook, Radiator Whiskey (Founder, Dackel German Pop-Up)
The Eater Young Guns Class of 2014 will be revealed at a party in June. Beginning next week Eater will profile many of the semi-finalists; head to Eater National for the complete list.
