With Top Chef Texas coming to a dramatic end just last week, we got to thinking about some of the restaurants that are either owned or manned by present or former cheftestants. In the last year in particular, alums of the Bravo reality show have been opening their own restaurants left and right (ink in LA, Girl & the Goat in Chicago, Sweet Cheeks Q in Boston, etc.). But which Top Chef-run restaurants actually live up to the hype? To get to the bottom of things, we thought we'd compare the Food scores from our various restaurant guides in each city to see which eateries came out on top. Click through the slideshow below to check out which Top Chef-run kitchens are the real deal.
