Greater Boston and Massachusetts at large are well-represented on this year's list of James Beard Awards semifinalists. Twelve local chefs and restaurants are among the nominees for the 2023 awards. Why it matters: The James Beards are the Oscars of the food world, with an annual ceremony at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Here are the local semifinalists: Outstanding chef: Rachel Miller of the Nightshade Noodle Bar in Lynn. Outstanding restaurant: PAGU in Cambridge and Red Rose Restaurant in Lowell.
