James Beard Award nominee
Title: Chef
Location: Staunton, VA
Establishment: The Shack Restaurant

Why he's a big deal: He's a graduate of New England Culinary Institute and a James Beard Foundation nominee for the “Best Chef Mid-Atlantic.” Downsizing to a 400 square-foot, 26 seat restaurant put him (in middle Virginia) on the destination dining map.
