Three Kansas City chefs took their first steps toward immortality earlier this week. The semifinalists for the James Beard Awards were announced Tuesday, and three local chefs are among the nominees for Best Chef: Midwest: Martin Heuser of Affare, Colby Garrelts of Bluestem [Garrelts' second restaurant Rye is this week's review] and Carl Thorne-Thomsen of Story.

This marks the first nomination for Heuser and Thorne-Thomsen and the seventh for Garrelts (the entire field of 22 chefs can be seen here). The finalists will be announced Monday, March 18. The awards dinner and ceremony is slated for Monday, May 6.
