Top Chefs Come Out for Celebrity Cruise Party

Last night, former Top Chef-testants participating in the upcoming Top Chef: The Cruise came out to The Kitchen NYC to meet and greet press and sample some of the gourmet fare from Celebrity Cruises. Spike Mendelsohn, Casey Thompson, Mike Isabella, Hosea Rosenberg and Hung Huynh were all in the house, sampling drinks made by Junior Merino (many of them smoking with liquid nitrogen).

We learned that Hosea (still with Blackbelly Catering) is planning to open his own shop in Boulder, CO in the near future, Spike is still working towards the opening of both Bearnaise and Good Stuff Philly and Hung (not on the cruise) who recently opened The General and Catch Miami will be down in SoBe for the upcoming Food & Wine fest. Stay tuned for more Top Chef updates right there.
