Portland’s Nominees for the 2020 James Beard Awards


It’s that time of year: The restaurant and chef semifinalists for the annual James Beard Awards have been announced — and that means it’s time to grab a Resy before the new crowds descend upon the newly minted honorees.

This year’s nominees range from an Indonesian hot spot up for the country’s Best New Restaurant to one of Portland’s fine dining stalwarts. The nominee finalists will be announced on March 25, and then 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.
