The Arizona Foodist finalists have been announced for 2015 and some Tucson favorites are up for awards this year. 

For restaurants, The Coronet is in the running for Emerging Restaurant of the Year and Agustin Kitchen and Cup Cafe are in the running for Best Breakfast Dish for their AK Poutine and Cast Iron Baked Eggs, respectively. Both Pizzeria Bianco and Diablo Burger are getting a nod for their multi-locational endeavors.

The beverage community made a pretty great showing this year too with bartender Aaron Defeo and Casino del Sol getting nominations for the Master Mixologist and Outstanding Beverage Program categories. The three month old Tough Luck Club is also in the running to win best cocktail for the Tough Luck Cup.

While it's admitterdly a bummer that Tucson didn't garner any nods for Food Pioneer, Top Chef and Outstanding Restaurant Concept, it's absolutely insane that a town that inches nearer and nearer to the 1,000 mark for food trucks and food carts didn't get recognized in the Outstanding Food Truck category. 

The winners for the 2015 Arizona Foodist Awards will be recognized at a four course dinner event on Thursday, April 23 at 6 p.m. at the Showcase Room in Tempe. Tickets and more information on the ceremony, including a full list of finalists, can be found on the Arizona Foodist website.
