Its that time of year: The restaurant and chef semifinalists for the annual James Beard Awards have been announced — and that means its time to grab a Resy before the next wave of crowds descends upon the newly minted honorees.

This years nominees include a stylish Mexican-French stunner and a quintessential pasta haven. The finalists will be announced on March 25, and the coveted awards will be handed out on May 4. The local Resy restaurants that made the cut are listed below; for the full national list, visit the Beard Foundation website.
