Food & Wine has a new spin on their highly anticipated ten-best-new-chefs awards. They’re doing an additional people’s choice list, and voting has begun. It will be much, much more inclusive, and six Texans have been nominated for the Southwest region. In fact, Texas totally dominates the list of nominees. Our guys are, in alphabetical order: Tim Byres, Smoke, Dallas; Andrew Curren, 24 Diner; Austin; Bryce Gilmore, Barley Swine and Odd Duck, Austin; Jesse Griffiths, Dai Due Supper Club, Austin; James Holmes, Olivia, Austin; and Casey Thompson, Brownstone, Fort Worth.  Voting ends March 1.
