"In the words of Sean Brock, 'Holy Shit.'"

It's been a stellar past few months for FIG's Jason Stanhope. First, Mike Lata named him executive chef at FIG, and now he's cinched the James Beard Foundation award in his first year nominated.

Stanhope beat out John Fleer (Rhubarb, Asheville, NC), Edward Lee (610 Magnolia, Louisville, KY), Steven Satterfield (Miller Union, Atlanta), Andrew Ticer and Michael Hudman (Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen, Memphis), and Tandy Wilson (City House, Nashville) for the win.

Reservations at FIG just got that much more difficult.
