so they announced the contestants for the new Top Chef: Chicago, and two of them are from Atlanta... and one of them is Richard Blais! i'm still kind of bummed out that we didn't get over to Element before it closed. the boy was willing to give it a shot, even though the first time we went to One (when Blais was there), the food was really not so great (and our waitress! dear lord. she sucked. but that's another story).
i am very excited to see what blais will come up with (i do hope he's progressed BEYOND the FOAM!). can't help but root for the local.
the other atlantan is some chick i've never heard of.
tonight i'm introducing the boy to bangladeshi food; we're meeting patty and zack over at Panahar. i do love that place, and i hope the boy shares my enthusiasm for it.
