Now that he's been crowned "Top Chef Master," Marcus Samuelsson is gonna be one red-hot commodity.
He's a New Yorker, but Chicago's also claiming him seeing as his C-House restaurant in the Affinia hotel is one of the hottest seafood spots to open in years.
The BBQ Bootcamp was a huge success last year, but look for it to be even more hyped this summer.

Some shocking news, folks, on the chef front.

From his blog:
Zoë Kravitz headlines a show with her rock band, Elevator Fight, at Debonair Social Club on Sunday.

We'll see if she has the chops when she performs at a benefit for Autism Speaks with Philly-based band Elevator Fight at Debonair Social Club Sunday.
