James Beard Celebration


Magellan Corporation, an In Association Sponsor for the James Beard Awards 2019, presented the “Outstanding Restaurateur” Award to Chicago’s own Boka Restaurant Group (Boka, Girl & the Goat, Momotaro, and others).  The events leading to the Awards, aka “Oscars of the Restaurant Industry,” included Chefs Night Out featuring several Chicago Street Food Restaurants.

Magellan Corporation had the distinct honor to host 20 active and veteran members from the US Armed Forces to both the Chefs Night Out and James Beard Awards Ceremony.  These brave men and women represented the US Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard.

The James Beard Foundation promotes “good food for good™” which served as the theme for the 2019 Awards.  In keeping with the theme, Magellan Corporation adopted the “Magellan for Good” tag, acknowledging its charity partners throughout Chicago and surrounding areas using James Beard Foundation’s social media and digital platforms.
