    NEW YORK, May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2007 James Beard Foundation Awards
 Ceremony and Gala Reception was held tonight at Avery Fisher Hall in
 Lincoln Center. Hosted by CBS Early Show anchor Hannah Storm, the Beard
 Awards glittered with designer-clad television celebrities and stars of the
 food world. And as you'd expect from any event produced by the preeminent
 nonprofit culinary organization, especially at its 20th anniversary
 celebration, the food was also dressed to the nines.
     More than 60 awards were presented, and more than 1,600 industry
 leaders attended the ceremony, which was followed by a reception dedicated
 to "Celebrating the Art of American Food," featuring an esteemed group of
 past Rising Star Chef award winners and nominees.
     Highlights of award winners include: Chicago's Frontera Grill named
 Outstanding Restaurant of the Year, presented by S.Pellegrino; Michel
 Richard (Michel Richard Citronelle, Washington D.C.) received the
 Outstanding Chef Award, presented by All-Clad Metalcrafters; New York's
 L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon named Best New Restaurant; Thomas Keller (The
 French Laundry, Yountville, CA) received the award for Outstanding
 Restaurateur, presented by Waterford Wedgwood; and David Chang (Momofuku
 Noodle Bar, New York) received the Rising Star Chef of the Year award,
 presented by Contessa Premium Foods.
     The country's top culinarians proved that they look as good in black
 tie as they do in chefs' whites as they walked a 25-foot-long red carpet to
 enter the famed hall. Celebrity and culinary superstar attendees included
 Stephanie March, Ted Allen, Katie Lee Joel, Martha Stewart, Wolfgang Puck,
 Bobby Flay, Thomas Keller, Jose Andres, Tom Colicchio, Jean-Georges
 Vongerichten, Padma Lakshmi, and Marcus Samuelsson.
     The Foundation's Media Awards took place at a separate event at the
 Hudson Theatre at Millennium Broadway Hotel in New York City on Sunday, May
 6, 2007, where 21 awards were presented. All Award winners received a
 bronze medallion etched with the image of the late James Beard, the
 esteemed chef, cookbook author, and food journalist. There are no cash
 awards.
     Established in 1990, the James Beard Foundation Awards recognizes
