On a summarized “Why he/she is amazing” description provided to all the contenders, Food and Wine said: “Because he’s meshing his Hawaiian background with local produce and Asian techniques at this no-frills Filipino gastropub [MiGrant].”

Simeon had previously been nominated for the same award by Food and Wine in 2012 and appeared as a finalist on the TV show Top Chef.
