Meet the Official Young Guns Selection Committee

eater-young-guns-2012.pngGood day, and welcome back to Eater Young Guns, our third annual roll call of the next guard. The public call for nominations wrapped up earlier this month, and it's time to introduce the esteemed group of veteran chefs from around the country who, along with our local and national Eater editors, will choose this year's class of Eater Young Guns. The committee of leaders this year — a mix of holdovers from the last couple of years and new faces — represents regions across North America from Atlanta to Vancouver, Austin to Chicago, Louisville, Kentucky to Raleigh, North Carolina. We have Chang in New York, Crenn in San Francisco, Voltaggio in LA, Moonen in Vegas.

Over the coming months, this group will put their heads together to identify the most promising up-and-comers in the restaurant and nightlife world, whether they're working as chefs or line cooks, sommeliers or bartenders, restaurateurs, or maître d's. And all will unfold on the pages of Eater. Here is the 2014 Eater Young Guns Official Selection Committee:
