Zack Bruell nominated for 2016 James Beard Foundation ‘Best Chef Great Lakes’ award
CLEVELAND, Ohio — Chef Zack Bruell, who operates 10 Northeast Ohio restaurants, has been nominated for a 2016 James Beard Foundation Award.
The nod from the Beard Foundation, which confers the culinary world’s most respected honors, is in the “Best Chefs: Great Lakes” category for Bruell’s flagship restaurant, Parallax .
“Of course I’m honored – and I’m especially proud to represent Cleveland. And a nomination like isn’t just about me, this is really about my staff.”
A win for Bruell would make him the third Cleveland chef to receive one of the food world’s top honors. In 2009 “Iron Chef” Michael Symon received the honor, and last year Jonathon Sawyer won the same prize.
Bruell is one of 20 semi-finalists in the category. The owner of Cowell & Hubbard, L’Albatros Brasserie, Chinato, Alley Cat, Kafeteria and Dynomite locations is one of three Ohioans to be recognized for their work in the Great Lakes region. Anne Kearney of Rue Domaine in Dayton, and Jose Salazar of Mita’s, in Cincinnati, are also among the first-round honorees.
Twelve of the other nominees each represent restaurants in Illinois, almost all of them in the Chicago area.
According the Beard Foundation’s guidelines, honorees in the regional chef categories are “[those] who have set new or consistent standards of excellence in their respective regions. Eligible candidates may be from any kind of dining establishment and must have been working as a chef for at least five years with the three most recent years spent in the region.”
A list of finalists will be announced on Tuesday, March 15. Winners will be named at the James Beard Awards Gala on Monday, May 2 at the Lyric Opera of Chicago
