The James Beard Foundation has just announced its semifinalists in the restaurant and chef categories for 2013, and South Florida has seven reasons to be very proud.

This is actually the beginning of the long road to winning a coveted James Beard Award. The semifinalist list will be whittled down March 18, when the remaining finalists will be named in Charleston.

After that, the winners for 2013 will be announced at the annual awards gala and reception May 6 at Avery Fisher Hall in New York City.
