The Top Chef Restaurant Locator: Your Guide to Dining at Contestants' and Judges' Restaurants
Top Chef seasons are great while they last; the challenges are cut-throat, the eliminations are heart-wrenching, the dishes are drool-worthy, and Padma Lakshmi is hotter than hellfire chili doused in habanero hot sauce. Yet, once the credits roll after each finale, we’re left with the stomach-churning feeling that our favorite contestants will disappear into culinary obscurity faster than week-old sushi.
Not anymore. The Top Chef Restaurant Locator is a giant database of every restaurant that contestants, judges, and guest judges have cooked for or currently cook for. Featuring detailed profiles of each chef and an interactive map of nearly 500 restaurants around the globe, this app brings your favorite cooking show to the real world. Why watch the Voltaggio brothers whip up a shrimp ceviche on TV when you can taste its savory goodness in person? Fed up with Tom Colicchio trashing your favorite contestant’s dishes week after week? Drive to any of his twenty restaurants and tell him that his filet mignon is rubbery. Sure, he may show you the door, but don’t worry about going hungry; directions to other Top Chef restaurants are just a few clicks away on your iPhone.
