Top Chef D.C.

I'm something of a TV-aholic.  If I posted about every inane television show that I'm currently obsessed with (I can't wait for new episodes of Undercover Boss!), this blog would quickly quickly spin out of control.  So I work really hard to limit my TV commentary.

That said, I can't resist telling you how excited I am about the new season of Top Chef, which is set in D.C.  I love Top Chef, no matter the City, and I really love going to the cheftestants' actual restaurants.  Zaytinya and Good Stuff Eatery, here in D.C., where you'll find Mike Isabella and Spike, are two of my favorites.  I also really like Perilla, in New York, which was opened by Harold Dieterle, the very first winner of Top Chef.  And I'm dying to try Volt, which is Bryan Voltaggio's restaurant in Frederick, but I haven't been able to get up there yet. 

But I digress.  I hope this season of Top Chef shows off D.C.'s great culinary scene.  And I hope viewers get a "flavor" for what a dynamic, beautiful city this is.  And I predict that Angelo will take home the win. 


  1. Love that show too!! And The Next Food Network Star, so excited :)

  2. I love Top Chef. I even watch the reruns.

  3. I don't watch Top Chef, but LOVE "Undercover Boss."
