  • McClure
He’s done it again. Matthew McClure, executive chef at The Hive in Bentonville’s 21c Museum Hotel, has been named a semifinalist for the 2017 James Beard Foundation Restaurant and Chef Awards in the Best Chef: South category.

It’s the fourth year in a row McClure has been nominated. McClure was also a semifinalist in 2014, 2015 and 2016, and in 2016 was a speaker at the foundation’s conference. He’s also been named “The People’s Best News Chef" for the Midwest by Food & Wine magazine.

The museum describes the menu as “High South,” McClure calls it “refined country.”
