Subject: "Congratulations Mike Anthony, James Beard Award Winner"

Dear colleagues,
 
Last night the James Beard Foundation proudly recognized something that we all have known for a very long time: that USHG’s own Chef Mike Anthony is Outstanding!
 
Seeing his name on the screen with such a talented group of nominees from across America demonstrates how high a regard our industry holds Mike and his work at USHG.  As colleagues we are fortunate to draw inspiration from that and so much more on a daily basis. Mike's dedication and support of his team, his commitment to their growth and development, professionally and personally are the real deal. Mike's Entrepreneurial Spirit – most recently demonstrated through the opening of Untitled and Studio Cafe - and pushing both himself and his team while leading with Integrity - has earned the trust of all stakeholders along the way.

We couldn’t be more proud of Mike – this is an honor that he has deservingly earned through his hard work, mastery of his craft, and dedication to Excellence and Enlightened Hospitality.  In his heartfelt acceptance speech, Mike acknowledged the teams at Gramercy Tavern, Untitled, and Studio Cafe, and the entire USHG culture that we all work tirelessly to nurture on a daily basis. 
 
Please join me in congratulating our OUTSTANDING CHEF Mike Anthony!  

Sabato
