By Scott Kearnan | March 18, 2014 By Scott Kearnan  |  March 18, 2014

Today the James Beard Foundation announced the finalists for its 2014 awards. Though a smattering of Boston-area restaurants were included in the semifinalists announced last month, it was a leaner number of local spots included in this final list. Take a look at the full list here, peek at the New England nominees below, and then let us know: Were any local should-have-been shoo-ins egregiously left out?
