    Definitely, been waiting for a while for the new season. My wife and I have been dining at Tyler Anderson's restaurant for several years and it's is one our favorite local spots, so we've been looking forward to seeing him compete since we first heard that he was filming last spring.

    It's actually kind of annoying to have a local chef on the show. Makes it very difficult to avoid spoilers, since I rarely watch live.

    I still really need to check out Millwrights though. Cook & The Bear is solid - burnt end sliders are awesome if you haven't been yet.

    Yeah I went for the opening. It was pretty solid - food was very tasty (Ed the chef there is the man and Tyler was cooking which was cool) - but didn’t love my overall experience. Planning to go revisit in the next week or so and see how they’ve improved. I hear you on spoilers but I’m not really all that invested in who wins or loses either.

    I went on a Saturday afternoon, between lunch and dinner, so it was empty. Sat at the bar, drank good beer, left happy - not sure what I expected food-wise, but it's still a bit too BBQ-heavy for me to make it a regular stop when I'm up there. One of the managers was pretty friendly and talked with us for a while. She was very happy/surprised to see me wearing a Modern Times shirt, since she had just moved here from SD.

    Bruh, they been divorced for more than 10 years. But she was probably attracted to his intelligence and the fact that he's one of (the?) greatest living English writers.

    It was sad — she made the classic mistake that always goes poorly on Top Chef: trying to cool the way she thinks the show wants to instead of cooking her food but matched to the constraints.

    If she’d done a carpaccio or a tartare inspired by crudo style, she’d have gotten to the second episode.
