James Beard Semifinalists

The usual suspects, but one I'd never heard of, for best restaurateur: Edward Aloise and Claudia Rippee, E&C Restaurant Management Corporation, Manchester, NH ??

Google didn't turn up other than a list of their holdings , some of which ( Baldwins ) are closed and some I couldn't even find.

  1. They own Republic, don't they? I Googled Ed's name and there was an article about Republic from NH Magazine link.

    1. Yes-they are the owners of Republic and the restaurant at the airport. They used to own Caffe Pavone (which is the site of Cotton).
