Craftsteak, Las Vegas
Sure, Tom Colicchio was running restaurants before anyone heard of reality TV, but he has taken to the medium and become everyone’s favorite judge. And he backs up his blunt commentary with a dozen New American restaurants across the country: Craft and Colicchio & Sons in New York; various ‘Wichcraft sandwich spots and small plate Craftbars from coast to coast; and CraftSteak in Las Vegas, which consistently wins praise even years after opening.
Don’t Miss: One of his 10 cuts of Kobe-style beef.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
