Awards season continues to highlight Houston chefs. Today Food & Wine announced this year's contenders for the title of The People's Best New Chef, a contest where readers vote to decide who the best young chef is in 10 different regions across the country. Terrence Gallivan and Seth Siegel-Gardner of The Pass & Provisions and Justin Yu of Oxheart have been nominated for the Southwest region. These chefs and restaurateurs are no strangers to national attention and award nominations. Just last week, Yu made it to the finals round of the James Beard Awards for the Southwest. According to the mag, Yu was nominated for this competition because "he's leaving Texans speechless with his delicious, artistic renderings of vegetables." Check out the magazine's complete profile on Yu here. As for Gallivan and Siegel-Gardner, they received a nod because "they're turning out tasty, thoughtful American food in two restaurants (one rustic, one refined) under a single roof." Their quintessential dish is the "pizza with guanciale, uni, roasted garlic and arugula at Provisions," and they describe their dual-concept restaurant as "a place we'd want to go ourselves all the time." Competing alongside the hometown guys are chefs Mat Clouser, Omar Flores, Matt McCallister, Frederick Perez, Paul Qui, Steven Redzikowski, Andrew Wiseheart and Brian Zenner.

Voting begins today, March 24 and continues through March 31.
