Interview with Former Top Chef Contestant CJ

Eater did a quicky interview with former Top Chef contestent CJ on his taking over Santa Monica's caual gastropub The Yard.

He, of course, was asked for predictions on this seasons winner, "I think it will be Kevin or Bryan. Mike (Voltaggio) seems like he may get too frustrated, but what do I know really? They are all bomb-ass cooks, except for maybe that yoga broad. She drives me bonkers."

    I love the "yoga broad" remark!

      Yeah, I kind of got a kick out of that remark as well.

    2. Let's just hope that his killer broccolini isn't on the menu at his new place! Didn't TC mention up until that point that it was the single worst dish in the history of TC? Nonetheless, he was a good contestant and I still think that Season 3 has been my favorite up until this point. Season 5 and (especially) 6 seem too slick and produced at times, albeit still with some very good contestants.
