Local chefs to appear on next 'Top Chef'
'Top Chef' season four contestant Stephanie Izard
The Stew is reporting that three chefs with local ties will be part of the lineup for Bravo's fourth season of "Top Chef," which was filmed in Chicago and premieres on March 13.
This is fabulous news because one of the contestants is Stephanie Izard, the former chef/owner of Scylla in Bucktown (which is now the very successful Takashi), who closed and sold her place to take a break. We wondered whatever became of her, and glad to see her making some hot moves in the biz.
