Xochi isn't just one of the best new restaurants in Houston, it's one of the best new restaurants in the nation.

If “eating some of the best food Houston has to offer” was on your to-do list for this weekend but you’re not sure where to start, you’ll want to check out the list of Houston restaurants and chefs named as semifinalists for the 2018 James Beard Awards. Considered by many to be Oscars of the food world, it’s always nice to see Houston get some national attention, and with 12 semifinalists selected Houston is definitely feeling the love today.

Here’s the list of Houston semifinalists:

With these 12 nominations, Houston has more semifinalists than Austin, Dallas and San Antonio combined. The 2018 James Beard Award finalists will be announced on March 14, and here’s hoping that Houston continues to get the love when those are announced. Congrats to all the semifinalists.
