This year’s James Beard Foundation Awards class of semifinalists in and around Washington, D.C., reflects the impressive depth of the region’s talent. Nominees include some of D.C.’s most respected and prolific restaurateurs, as well as one of the District’s most offbeat and engaging wine programs, chefs who are redefining modern Korean cooking and inspired by Afrofuturism, an iconic high-end Italian restaurant, and much more.

Finalists will be announced in April, and awards handed out June 10 in Chicago. The local Resy restaurants that made the cut are listed below; find the full national list here on the Beard Foundation website.
