Mélange’s Chef Elias Taddesse Named to James Beard Award Shortlist for “Best Emerging Chef”

Friday January 27, 2023

MVT’s own Chef Elias Taddesse can officially add being James Beard Award shortlisted to his growing list of accolades and achievements! Chef Elias was the only chef from DC to be included in his category that the James Beard Foundation describes as, “A chef who displays exceptional talent, character, and leadership ability, and who is likely to make a significant impact in years to come, while contributing positively to their broader community.” We certainly believe he fits the bill! Chef Elias and Mélange have been a great contribution to our MVT community since opening in 2020. Congratulations on the honor, Chef!
