We would circle his voice if we could
The last day of Round One voting in our Hottest Chef in New York contest is finally upon us and it's going to be a tough heat. Frenchie Eric Ripert goes up against Lunetta's Adam Shepard, Buddakan's Lon Symensma, Public's Brad Farmerie, and Aquavit's Johan Svensson. The victor will join the winners from our past eight heats along with a wild card contender in Round Two next week. Remember you eager campaigners, PR chickadees, and tech savvy fans that suspicious voting could end in disqualification. For a look at all 45 contenders, see a gallery here. May the hottest chef win.
