Top Chef: New Orleans Premiers Tonight

top-chef-no-carousel

Just a quick reminder, folks. The new season of Top Chef debuts tonight, featuring two of Philly’s finest: Nick Elmi and Jason Cichonski.

Do we know anything yet for sure? No, we don’t. But we’ve seen the same promo videos you have, and it looks like Cichonski is getting a lot of screen time while Elmi is getting…less. One thing we’re pretty sure of, though, is that both guys make it past round one.


So set your DVR's or do whatever it is you do. The fun starts tonight at 10pm on Bravo. And be sure to check back here tomorrow afternoon when we'll have an exhaustive recap of the first episode, done by none other than Fidel Gastro himself.

  • Le Bec-Fin

    Other than stand and watch as 2 restaurants failed around him, I am a tad confused as to what makes Elmi one of our finest. Maybe he can do better on TV acting as a chef as opposed to actually doing the job.

  • Sarah

    Seriously. Despite being flaky, at least Cichonski has his own thing going. Chef/partner Elmi was evicted from Le Bec-Fin (brought back to 3 bells in his absence) and then immediately drove Rittenhouse Tavern into the ground … sure he got 3 bells (surprising considering the consistency) but at the cost of permanently closing the doors.
