Houston’s Julep Cocktail Bar Receives James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Bar Program Award
It was a night to remember for the lady in red at the 2022 James Beard Foundation Awards in Chicago, Illinois. Alba Huerta, wearing a glamorous red dress, won the coveted Outstanding Bar Program award for her cocktail bar Julep.
Playfully dubbed “the Oscars of the foodie world,” the awards recognize outstanding hospitality, best new restaurant and outstanding bar program, among others. They are considered one of the most prestigious honors among chefs and restaurateurs. The James Beard Foundation named its finalists in March, but it was at Monday night’s official awards ceremony that the year’s winners were announced.
