None of Houston's four nominees for this year's James Beard Awards took home prizes, but that didn't stop them from enjoying the occasion. Last night, Underbelly shared this photo of Clumsy Butcher partner Bobby Heugel with Underbelly chef/owner Chris Shepherd and sous chef/Eater Young Gun finalist Ryan Lachaine dressed up for the ceremony. Shepherd cleans up nicely for a guy who can usually be found in a chef coat or Texans jersey. To see Houston's other Best Chef Southwest nominee, Hugo Ortega, click here.
