Garden & Gun catches up with newly-announced James Beard Awards Best Chef South finalists? Justin Devillier, Tory McPhail, Alon Shaya, and Sue Zemanick? this week to find out the
very exciting way they celebrated the big news.
Justin Devillier of La Petite Grocery worked, made himself a "good Old-Fashioned" and went to bed.
Tory McPhail of Commander's Palace had a "regular night in the kitchen," ate corned beef and brussels sprouts at the Commander's Palace family meal, and popped open a bottle of champagne back home.
Alon Shaya of Domenica ate takeout with his wife, Emily, and drank prosecco while watching television.
Sue Zemanick of Gautreau's had Vietnamese with friends. No word on what restaurant she hit up.
