Congrats to Our Top Chefs on their Eater Awards

The annual awards handed out by Eater.com are, er, rather more idiosyncratic than those bestowed by the James Beard Foundation, Food + Wine, etc. But we're happy for the winners nonetheless. They include: Top Chef: Texas competitors Paul Qui, for Chef of the Year Austin, and Sarah Grueneberg, who somehow bested Grant Achatz and Stephanie Izard for Chef of the Year Chicago. Top Chef Season 1 winner Harold Dieterle took Chef of the Year NYC.

Yardbird Southern Table + Bar, Season 4’s Jeff McInnis’s new project, won for Best Bathroom Miami. (I told you these awards are quirky, but I hear his restaurant is terrific.) The ubiquitous Fabio Viviani won Eater’s 2011 Fameball Award.
