The final heat in round two of the Hottest Chefs in NY competition begins now. All month, Eater readers have been whittling away at the original pool of 32 chefs leaving us with an elite nine (eight plus a wild card). On Friday, the three finalists from the round two heats held all this week will go head to head to finally decide which is the hottest chef of 2009. Today, newcomer to the list Tomas Curi of the 3rd Avenue 'inoteca goes up against Jean Georges' Johnny Iuzzini and Bobo's Patrick Connolly. May the hottest chef win.
