Watch 'Top Chef Masters' with Marcus Samuelsson
The second season of Bravo's "Top Chef Masters" debuts 10pm Wednesday, featuring a number of culinary kings repping Chicago.
There's certain to be plenty of competition between Spiaggia's Tony Mantuano, Graham Elliot's Graham Elliot Bowles, Primehouse's David Burke, Tru's Rick Tramanto and C-House's Marcus Samuelsson, so it would be nice to hang out at a cool place to cheer them on.
Until today we only knew about one viewing party (the sold-out one at Spiaggia), so we were excited to find out about the just-announced event at C-View at Affinia Hotel.
Throughout the season, the stylish rooftop lounge hosts a casual screening of the show to cheer on resident chef Marcus Samuelsson. They're doing $10 Hum, Bacardi and Patron specialty cocktails, $8 glasses of red wine and $10 selections of cured meats and fish.
On Wednesday, April 14 at 8pm, Samuelsson will be in the house for an intimate meet and greet. Also, guests attending the screenings have the chance to win the C-House "Top Chef Masters" Prize Package, including overnight accommodations at the Affinia and a signed copy of Samuelsson’s latest cookbook New American Table.
Finally, throughout the season, C-House is doing a prix-fixe dinner menu inspired by Samuelsson’s signature dishes and his book, which will be available to guests before the viewing parties at C-View. It's $39 with a portion of proceeds donated to his designated charity from the show, the UNICEF Tap Project.
