The James Beard Foundation played its version of March Madness this morning, announcing the brackets for its second round of competition for the coveted awards.

Highlands Bar & Grill and pastry chef Dolester Miles continued their March win streaks, with Highlands named a finalist for the James Beard Award as Outstanding Restaurant for the 10th year in a row. Miles is a finalist for Outstanding Pastry Chef for the third straight year.

The news was not so good for other Alabama semifinalists announced last month. David Bancroft of Acre in Auburn, Brill Briand of Fisher’s Upstairs in Orange Beach and Timothy Hontzas of Johnny’s Restaurant in Homewood failed to advance in the Best Chef: South category. Also, this year’s newcomers as semifinalists – Atomic Lounge and Southern National – will not be making a Cinderella run to the finals. Birmingham’s Atomic Lounge had been selected as a semifinalist for Outstanding Bar Program, while Mobile’s Southern National was up for the Outstanding New Restaurant award.Winners will be honored at the James Beard Foundation Awards gala on May 7 at Chicago’s Lyric Opera.
