AKA Bistro Reopens Tonight; Future of Junk Food

INTERNET / NYC — Tonight is the glitzy 2014 James Beard Awards ceremony, and a live broadcast will be shown online, beginning at 6 p.m. Eater NY shares some predictions for how it'll all go down, and Boston's Barbara Lynch is the frontrunner in Outstanding Restaurateur category, where she's up against Phil Suarez (ABC Kitchen, Jean Georges, etc. in New York), Donnie Madia (Chicago's One Off Hospitality Group), Cindy Pawlcyn (Mustards Grill and Cindy's Back Street Kitchen in Napa Valley), and Caroline Styne (Lucques and A.O.C. in Los Angeles).

LINCOLN — Out in Lincoln, the popular AKA Bistro was forced to close back in December thanks to major flooding. Tonight, it reopens after extensive renovations. Chef/co-owner Chris Chung, an Uni alum, will be in charge of both the Japanese food and the French food while previously there were separate chefs working on each. [Press Release]
