The James Beard award for Best Chef Southwest remained elusive for Barley Swine chef-owner Bryce Gilmore Monday night in Chicago. Houston chef Hugo Ortega took home the award for which Gilmore earned his fifth consecutive finalist nod this year for the small-plates, hyper-local restaurant he originally opened in 2010.
Barley Swine earned the #1 ranking in the Austin360 Dining Guide in 2016 and in 2013, and his Odd Duck also took at Top 10 spot last year (#4).
