Five years ago, when Jason Sheehan had not yet worked at Westword a year, he won the James Beard Foundation award for reviewing -- the biggest award around for a food critic.
This year he was again a finalist for the prize, but at last night's awards ceremony in New York City, the top slot went to a reviewer from Angeleno. Sheehan will spill all the details here when he recovers from the party. -- Patricia Calhoun
