Last night was the Top Chef challenge the cheftestants had been waiting for: Restaurant Wars. They were divided into two groups by drawing knives and given just 24 hours to build a restaurant from the kitchen to the menu to the décor. With guest judges including Momofuku empire builder David Chang and restaurateur extraordinaire David Myers, the pressure was on. While team Fin did swimmingly, team Found was lost (puns brought to you by Tom Colicchio). For those playing F&W’s Fantasy Top Chef, here are the points earned and lost by chefs last night.
Nina Compton: +1 for her analogy that in a restaurant line cooks are the children while the general manager and executive chef are parents who are always fighting. +1 for her pork dish, which the judges thought was great. -3 for being on the losing team. Total points: 54
Carrie Mashaney: +3 for being on the winning team. Total points: 46
