While the nomination is for the work done for Jose Garces' Chicago restaurant, Mercat a la Planxa, if the Mercat graphics win, the award goes to the design firm — Korn Design out of Boston — that did the design work, not Garces.
Note: Korn Design won the Beard Award in this category in 2009 for the work they did for a Denver restaurant.
