Last night, the James Beard Foundation gave out its annual awards at a packed ceremony at New York's Lincoln Center, and two local folks snapped up some coveted honors: Barbara Lynch for Outstanding Restaurateur and Jamie Bissonnette for Best Chef: Northeast. (Here's the full list of winners.)

Eater National live-blogged the event; here are some highlights featuring Boston's own.

7:16 Barbara Lynch and Daniel Boulud are too blind to read the teleprompter so they are reading off of their phones. Lynch drops a couple of swear words.

7:21 WINNER Best Chef Northeast: Jamie Bissonnette, Coppa. Excellent acceptance speech: "I'd like to thank my father for putting up with all the dumb shit I did as a kid."

9:07 They are playing an instrumental version of "In Da Club" as Lynch walks up to the stage.

9:08 Lynch is very visibly moved by the honor. This is the second year in a row that a woman has won.
