Seafood Revolution salutes Nicole Medrano as “Young Guns” Semi- Finalist

Jun 05, 2017

We Salute Our “Young Gun”

Nicole Medrano

Eater “Young Guns” Semi-Finalist

Seafood R’evolution Executive Sous Chef

Eater Young Guns is Eater’s annual search to recognize the best and brightest talent in the restaurant industry. Since 2012, Young Guns has recognized front- and back-of-house newcomers who exhibit tenacity and desire to succeed through food, drink, and service. These rising stars — who are under 30 or have less than five years of experience — are not run-of-the-mill chefs, bartenders, and sommeliers. Not only do they work hard at what they do, but they are also mighty talented and deeply admired by their peers and guests, and they represent the future of dining in America. This year, Eater received over 1,000 nominations for nominees who reside in 101 different cities across the United States and Canada. With input from Eater editors, past winners, and our judging committee of industry leaders, the list was whittled down to 50 — well, 55, technically, since we have five teams of two — up-and-comers. Finalists will be announced on June 22.
