Chew on This: What’s Your Take on Top Chef’s Mike Isabella?
Comments () | Published September 22, 2009
This season’s Top Chef features a number of contestants with local ties, among them Zaytinya chef Mike Isabella. On the show, he’s made his fair share of controversial comments. About a month ago he got married, and last Sunday the Washington Post told the story of his relationship, showing a softer side to the 34-year-old chef. We’ve heard rumblings of Top Chef viewers who are so turned off by Isabella’s attitude that they’ve vowed never to visit Zaytinya again. What do you think? Are a chef’s comments on a reality show enough to turn you away from his or her restaurant? Or has the Bravo show’s editing turned Isabella into something he’s not? Let us know in the comments!
