Ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together for the Eater Young Guns Class of 2013, a group of 15 of the most distinguished young chefs, restaurateurs, sommeliers, and hospitality industry professionals in the country. And we're extra pleased to announce that one of Minneapolis's own—Travail chef and co-owner Mike Brown—is among the class deemed the junior statesmen of the culinary world.
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.
Click over to the Eater mothership for brief profiles of the rest of this year's group, which also includes Madison's Mark Shieber (Forequarter) and Chicago's Mitch Lienhard (Grace), repping the Midwest.
