Today, Eater revealed the Young Guns Class of 2013, a group of 15 of the most distinguished young chefs, restaurateurs, sommeliers, and hospitality industry professionals in the country. Over the past two months, readers were introduced to the final 50 on the list. That list has been narrowed down to only 15 who have most distinguished themselves this year in the food and beverage world.
The four women and 11 men come from 15 cities, range in age between 25 and 38, and serve as chefs, pastry chefs, beverage pros, and front-of-house leaders. The Eater Young Guns Class of 2013 will be celebrated at a gala event in Los Angeles on Monday, June 24. Young Guns Eve, a public tasting event featuring many of the winning chefs, goes down the night before on June 23. Tickets are still available.
