We reported earlier that Jones Bar-B-Q Diner of Marianna was to be honored last weekend as an “American classic” restaurant during the annual James Beard Foundation awards ceremony. Top restaurants are honored, along with outstanding writing about food. Jones was doubly honored by being the subject of John T. Edge’s prize-winning article about barbecue in Saveur magazine.
Posted above is the video prepared for the awards ceremony.
The award prompted still more spinoff coverage, including this piece on CBS News.
