Vote for Miami chefs in Food & Wine's people choice awards

Food & Wine magazine named its 2015 class of Best New Chefs this week. Not a single South Florida chef was included in the prestigious list that will see them featured in the magazine’s July issue and showcased at the 33rd annual Food & Wine Classic in Aspen.

Now, the magazine is compiling a people’s choice list of the country’s most talented chefs with online voting taking place through April 8.

Up for the honor in the Gulf Coast category are two Miami chefs: Jose Mendin of The Pubbelly Restaurant Group and Deme Lomas of NIU Kitchen.

I have yet to dine at NIU, so my money’s on Mendin, who dazzles at the original Pubbelly plus Pubbelly Sushi, Barceloneta and L’echon Brasserie.

To cast your ballot, visit the Food & Wine site.
