Portland Press Herald - 3/24/2010.
By Meredith Goad – Clark Frasier and Mark Gaier, the chef/owners of Arrows Restaurant in Ogunquit, were nominated Monday for the "Best Chef: Northeast" award from the James Beard Foundation. It's the chefs' seventh nomination, but they have never won. They were the only Maine chefs to be nominated for the honor this year, although there were three other semifinalists from the state. The James Beard Awards are the most prestigious in the restaurant industry and are often compared to the Academy Awards.
