St. Louis foodies, this one's for you.

Four local culinary names have been designated James Beard Award semifinalists, the St. Louis Business Journal reports.

So who are the four local honorees? Alphabetically they are:

Bardgett is up for the award for Outstanding Wine Service, while the other three are in contest for the "Best Chef in the Midwest" designation.
