New, 45 comments

Today marks the final day in Round 1 voting, so let's meet our last five chefs. Today Shea Gallante of new Italian restaurant Ciano goes up against Nikki King of Pure Food & Wine, Blake Joyal of The Bedford (here posing for bonus points with his newborn), Jeremy Culver of Fulton Restaurant, and Julia Jaksic of Employees Only.

The winner today will face off against earlier finalists in round two for the crown. But don't feel too bad for the losers of the first round heats. Everyone's a winner when it comes to Hottest Chefs.
