Four chefs and two restaurants in Dallas are up for the prestigious James Beard Awards, which annually recognize culinary excellence. But Big D is definitely not the only Texas city to make the list.

Here are the Dallas restaurants and chefs among the James Beard Awards semifinalists, including their nomination category:

And North Texas' nominations pale in comparison to the rest of the state.
The Houston area has 11 nominations, including Ronnie Killen of Killen’s Steakhouse in Pearland for Best Chef: Southwest, while Austin has eight nominations, including Laura Sawicki of Launderette for Best Pastry Chef. 

San Antonio (Steve McHugh of Cured for Best Chef: Southwest) and Lubbock (Kim McPherson of McPherson Cellars for Outstanding Wine, Beer or Spirits Producer) have one nomination each. 

The finalists are scheduled to be announced March 27 in Houston.
