And Jason Sheehan is one of three finalists in the Craig Claiborne Restaurant Reviewing category -- the same category in which he snagged top prize his first year at Westword. (Sheehan left Denver early this year to become the restaurant critic for our partner paper, the Seattle Weekly).
The publication winners will be announced in New York City on May 2, the day before the chef/restaurant awards are announced.
The semi-finalists in that field were released in February, with Colorado well-represented -- among other things, Frank Bonanno was included in the list for Outstanding Restaurateur of the Year.
Those finalists will be announced today, too.
