The James Beard Restaurant and Chef Awards are regarded as some of the top awards a restaurant and chef can earn, and this year a Jamaica Plain restaurant, and a Jamaica Plain resident, are semifinalists. Jamaica Plain resident Tiffani Faison, who is often a judge on Food Network's Chopped, was honored as a semifinalist for her restaurant Orfano. Faison was previously named a James Beard Finalist for Best Chef: Northeast in 2018, 2019, and 2020.
