After today, it's chef on chef. Chefo a chefo. Toque to toque hotness.
First, however, we've got the tender(loin) touch of Patrick Stark from Sundown at Granada (Round One, Day Six), the local lovin' of Jeana Johnson from Good 2 Go Taco, Goodfriend and the upcoming Acme F&B (Round One, Day Five), the saucy swagger of John Tesar from the upcoming Spoon and formerly of the Commissary (Round One, Day Eight), and the simmering smile of Jon Stevens from Nosh Euro Bistro (Round One, Day Seven).
Congrats to Jill Bates of Fearing's! She's the first chef into the finals for Hottest Chef in Dallas. And we'd like to point out that since this is the inaugural competition here in Dallas, Bates is officially the first Hottest Chef in Dallas finalist...like...ever. But who will she battle?
Vote now for who you find to be the hottest of these four! Poll will remain open through 11:55 a.m. tomorrow.
