The RAMMY nominations party is tonight, so I'll have those posted as soon as I get back. But in the meantime, the 2009 James Beard Foundation Award nominees were announced yesterday (via Twitter), so here are some local contenders.

— Johnny Monis of Komi is nominated in the Rising Star category.

— The Best Chef Mid-Atlantic nominees are Cathal Armstrong of Restaurant Eve, Peter Pastan of Obelisk, and Vikram Sunderam of Rasika.

— José Andrés is nominated for Outstanding Chef.
