“It’s surreal to receive this honor, especially after two incredibly challenging years," Li says. "I’m extremely grateful to my team members, both past and present, my family, and the James Beard Foundation, whose partnership I value deeply. I feel extremely lucky to be in a position to both participate in and challenge the restaurant industry, which I love so much."
