MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Milwaukee is the home of this year's best chef in the Midwest.  

Justin Aprahamian, who owns the Sanford restaurant, received the award from the James Beard Foundation Monday night in New York.

He was the only nominee from Wisconsin, and he beat out five other chefs from Minnesota and Missouri.

Aprahamian grew up in the Milwaukee suburb of New Berlin, and he graduated from the culinary program at Waukesha County Technical College.

He bought Sanford in late 2012 from the D'Amato family. The fine dining establishment specializes in seasonal dishes -- plus meals inspired by the new owner's Armenian background.
