Each year the James Beard Foundation chooses five recipients for its America's Classics awards. The honor, according to the foundation, is bestowed upon regional establishments, often family-owned, that are cherished for their quality food, local character, and lasting appeal.

This year, the James Beard Foundation chose Boston's Galleria Umberto, a popular cash-only north-end pizzeria serving Sicilian slices, which began in 1974, according to northendwaterfront.com

The 2018 winners will be honored at the James Beard Awards Gala at Lyric Opera of Chicago on Monday, May 7.
