On Monday night at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, chefs from across the nation were awarded for their accomplishments by the James Beard Foundation. It’s the first year in the awards’ history that they were held outside of New York (and Chicago will host the Beards in 2016 and 2017, as well). However, as in many years past, New York-area chefs took many of the night’s top honors, from Outstanding Chef (Michael Anthony) to Best New Restaurant (Batard) to Outstanding Restaurant (Blue Hill at Stone Barns).
 
That said, Chicago earned its own share of the top awards, including Outstanding Restaurateur (Donnie Madia of One Off Hospitality Group: Blackbird, Avec, The Publican, etc), Outstanding Bar Program (for the Violet Hour), and a Lifetime Achievement Award for Richard Melman of Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises.
