James Beard House cameo

Get a look at that tartare. It's one of several courses prepared by D.C. chefs last night during the annual pilgrimage to the James Beard House, for a dinner celebrating the year's Rammy nominees. Making the trek this year: Convivial's Cedric Maupillier, Maketto's Erik Bruner-Yang, Centrolina's Amy Brandwein, Jon Krinn and Jason Maddens of Clarity, Nick Stefanelli of Masseria, and Osteria Morini pastry chef Alex Levin.
