Is Benu's Corey Lee One of Food & Wine's Best New Chefs?

Every year, just before Food & Wine magazine announces its annual list of 10 best new chefs, editor Dana Cowin (@fwscout) tweets out hints about the winners, using the hashtag #BestNewChefs.

At least one Bay Area chef usually makes the cut. Last year, it was Joshua Skenes of Saison, and the year before that, Commis chef-owner James Syhabout. The magazine has good taste: Previous winners include Craig Stoll, Traci Des Jardins, and Nancy Oakes.

This afternoon, Cowin tweeted out the following:
Hint #5 @fandw #BestNewChef Bay Area Leeding Man. C'mon San Fran, who do you think it could be?
That one seems easy: Corey Lee of Benu. We'll let you know if anyone else from the Bay Area makes the official list. (The May July issue with all 10 winners should hit newstands in a few months.)
