Congratulations to Chef Daniel Wright of Senate and Abigail Street! Wright won Food & Wine’s People’s Choice competition for Great Lakes Region’s Best New Chef. Wright’s work is wowing locals and filling his two hip Over-the-Rhine eateries out the door with eager diners. Nice to bring this recognition home again, following The Palace’s Jose Salazar’s victory in 2011.

Also hot news today: Burnell’s has opened in Mayberry’s former spot at 917 Vine St. Chef Nathan Jolley has begun his new venture with lunch service, Monday through Friday from 10:30am to 2:00pm. The menu is online at  http://www.burnellscincy.com/Lunch.html.

We still love Mayberry! Be sure to visit Chef Josh Campbell in his new location at 1211 Main St. We were there for Sunday brunch a few weeks ago. The food was better than ever, and the people are sweet as pie. Follow Josh on Twitter @mayberrycincy.
