Which Top Chef-Run Restaurants Live Up to the Hype, 2013 Edition

Did Izard deliver after her win? 
The battle in Seattle continues to rage on the current season of Top Chef, but finding success on a reality show doesn't mean that you can deliver in a restaurant setting. Last year, we took a look at a slew of Top Chef-helmed eateries to see which lived up to the hype, and since then, Zagat surveyors have reviewed and rated a bunch of new haunts from your favorite television toques. Click through the slide show below to see which are actually worth the visit, and let us know about your favorite cheftestant-run eateries in the comments.

  3. Sable is not new, nor is it very good. I actually got food poisoning when I ate here a couple of years ago.

  4. I have eaten at Gorbals, and the food is ome of the weirdest stuff I've ever eaten. Scottish-Jewish--the chef might claim he's celebrating his heritage, but I think he has issues. Bacon-wrapped matzoh balls? Self-hating Jew, I'd say.
