Top Chef: New Orleans – Ep 9 – The Most Lopsided Restaurant Wars

Found Dishes
Carlos Crudo. Gail said it was not sliced properly at all.

Justin Rabbit. Tom said it was incredibly overcooked and undercooked at the same time. And the plating issues messed up the dish.

Chung Cobia (it’s a fish) . Chang gave the dish a decent review.

BB Tenderloin. Tom said it was nicely cooked and had a crispy outside. Gail said it was the best dish on the team.

Sara Brown Butter cake. The cream broke, so she is missing a huge component. Gail called it a weird greasy cookie.

So, Sara is out, and despite trying hard to beat the new LCK champ Louis, she joins the eliminated and Louis retains his jacket.

Quickfire Hits
• Seriously with the cream cheese? Anyone else catch the stocked fridge?
• Was Padma wearing a bathrobe in the non-Quickfire?
• Why was Cap so good in the front? He said you always put the gays in the front of the house. I guess I can’t argue with success.
• Cmar likes scallops and corn. And I can’t see anything wrong with that.
• She also doesn’t think that gold reflects seafood. I think The Golden Lobster may be a great idea for a fantasy novel.
• Loved Carrie pretending to be a soccer mom in the car. The only thing missing – kid related trash strewn across the vehicle.
• Carlos actually built a restaurant from scratch – perhaps he should have played a larger role in this challenge.
• Shrimp heads and shrimp butter. I am intrigued and grossed out at the same time.
• Oh, and can we talk about the stunning red dress that Padma had on at the challenge? Please. I dig red dresses.
• Extra – The judges talk about opening a restaurant and Tom recalls losing a critic’s ticket.

Next week – Squirrel. Dishes from home. And a lot of tears.
