Nashville chef wins Southeast people's choice competition

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

One of Nashville's most popular chefs has been awarded a big honor.

Roderick Bailey of The Silly Goose in east Nashville has won Food and Wine magazine's "The People's Best New Chef" award in the southeast category.

Like the title says, the honor is voted on by the people - restaurant customers - not the publication's editors.

Matthew Lackey from Flyte was named a finalist for the award.

Bailey is now entered into the contest for the national People's Best New Chef title.

Chef finalist for southeast award

Local chef Tandy Wilson, of the popular City House restaurant in the Germantown area of Nashville, was also honored this week.

On Monday, the James Beard Foundation announced Wilson is a finalist in the category of Best Chef Southeast.

The winner will be announced in May.

Prince's Hot Chicken is also among the honorees for the foundation's "America's Classics" awards.
