The James Beard Foundation Awards are something like the Oscars of the food industry—many of the nation's most highly regarded chefs are honored for their contribution to the culinary world. And after the ceremony, an incredible selection of chefs serve small tastes at the Gala Reception. (Take it from us; it's a good time.)
Tickets to the event in New York City are extremely limited and generally go for $450, but thanks to organic and Fair Trade certified chocolate brand Green & Black's, one of the JBF Awards' sponsors, we're giving away a pair right here.
To enter to win, just answer the following question in the comments: Which nominated restaurant do you want to win the Best New Restaurant award?
Contest will end and comments will close at noon ET, Friday, April 15, 2011. One entry per community member. Giveaway includes two tickets, not transportation or accommodation; please only enter if you will be able to attend the ceremony in New York City. The standard Serious Eats contest rules apply.
