    Same here, I'm glad to see Kevin and Stephanie get a mention

    Also I am quite pleased with Tom Douglas' restaurants and hope he wins in his category.

    NYC is a who's who. I don't think there was any chef listed there that I did not recognize the name.

    And just a shout out to Orlando - I'm proud to see a few mentions to show Orlando isn't just about chain restaurants.

      Nice to see Kevin Gillespie on the Rising Chef list...he should have been on Top Chef All Stars!

        I was pleased to see that and Stephanie Izard's restaurant on the Best New Restaurant list as well. Not finalists (yet!) but still good to see the recognition.

        As for Kevin - I don't think he needs the publicity. :-)

          Pretty sure that he and Bryan V. were approached but both turned down due to their hectic schedules nowadays...
