New York City’s Nominees for the 2022 James Beard Awards


After the most unusual two years, the annual James Beard Awards are back to their regular schedule of nominations, which means it’s time to check in on your local favorites among the newly announced semifinalists.

This year’s class in New York City includes a new restaurant pushing forward Cantonese American traditions, a next-level Southern and soul food vegan restaurant, and a bonafide city classic that’s been serving the local community since 1962.

Finalists will be announced in March, and awards handed out June 13 in Chicago. The local Resy restaurants that made the cut are listed below; find the full national list here on the Beard Foundation website.
