Look who's joining the Best New Chefs family: Food & Wine has released their list of the country's best new chefs (chefs who have run their own kitchens for five years or less), and the 11 chefs chosen are set to join the ranks of Daniel Boulud, Tom Colicchio, and David Chang.

The 11 chefs? Danny Bowien (Mission Chinese Food in New York, N.Y.), Justin Cogley (Aubergine in Carmel, Calif.), José Enrique (José Enrique in San Juan, Puerto Rico), Matthew Gaudet (West Bridge, Boston), Jamie Malone (Sea Change, Minneapolis), Chris Shepherd (Underbelly, Houston), Alex Stupak (Empellón Cocina, New York City), Andy Ticer & Michael Hudman (Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen in Memphis, Tenn.) Jason Vincent (Nightwood, Chicago), and Michael Voltaggio (Ink, Los Angeles).

In other awards news, Time Out New York has announced their food and drink awards for 2013, where Daniel Humm won readers' choice for Chef of the Year, with the best new restaurant The NoMad. Best new cocktail bar went to Pouring Ribbons, with Perla winning best new Italian joint, while Biang! won best second act (as the Xi'an Famous Foods empire strategically announces two new locations). Check out the full awards list here, especially as Mission Chinese wins critic's pick for "The Smoking Hot Number." It's been a good year for Danny Bowien.
