Among the finalists for what's essentially considered the Oscars of the American food world are four Philadelphia-based nominations, including two for modern Israeli restaurant and long-running Society Hill establishment Zahav.

Brad Kilgore, chef and co-owner of Alter, in Wynwood, has been named one of six finalists for the James Beard Foundation's award for Best Chef: South, the committee announced Wednesday. Yin was among the semifinalists for the same award in 2017 as well.

Outstanding Service: San Francisco's iconic Zuni Cafe will go up against the city's Saison and three other US restaurants for the award that honors a business that "demonstrates high standards of hospitality and service". Grupe, Luo and Shelton were first-time semifninalists in the category.

Tova du Plessis, who owns Essen Bakery on East Passyunk Avenue, for baker; Talula's Table, Aimee Olexy's Kennett Square market/chef's table, for restaurant; Jesse Ito of Queen Village's Royal Izakaya for rising star chef; Teresa's Next Door in Wayne in the bar-program category; Pat O'Malley of the Hungry Pigeon in pastry; and Chef Vola's in Atlantic City for service.

Merkel elected to 4th term as Germany's chancellor
After weeks of negotiations, a coalition treaty was produced and later approved by SPD members who voted via postal ballot. The coalition led to political instability and German business leaders also expressed concern over the effect due to this.

Cogswell, who is originally from North Carolina, now acts as Zahav's pastry chef.

Texas chefs dominated the short list for the Best Chef: Southwest category, including Olamaie's Michael Fojtasek, Barley Swine's Bryce Gilmore, and Steve McHugh from San Antonio's Cured.

Kostow, of The Restaurant at Meadowwood, and chef-owner David Kinch, of Manresa in Los Gatos, both got the nod for Outstanding Chef. She was also a nominee past year. Gerard Craft of Niche won "Best Chef: Midwest" in 2015, and Kevin Nashan of Sidney Street Cafe took the same award previous year. Ella Brennan, Martin's mother and Brennan's aunt, received the same honor in 1984 and received the James Beard Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009.
