The Midwesterners have spoken. And the name they were all clicking was Carl Thorne-Thomsen. The chef and co-owner of Story in Prairie Village has been named The People's Best New Chef: Midwest in an online vote conducted by Food & Wine.

Thorne-Thomsen and Port Fonda's Patrick Ryan were in the running in the Midwest category. Thorne-Thomsen was also named a semifinalist in the Best Chef: Midwest category of the James Beard Awards earlier this year. Brendan McGill of Hitchcock in Bainbridge Island, Washington, was the overall winner (meaning he garnered the most clicks) for the Food & Wine contest.
