Sighting: Richard Blais
I love, love, love Top Chef, and I particularly rooted for Atlanta's own Richard Blais last time around. He was consistently creative, whimsical and a class act; and although I also thought Stephanie deserved to win, I was disappointed he didn't come out on top.
So I was very excited to see him enjoying brunch at Parish over the weekend. He certainly stands out in a crowd, so I actually spotted him sitting on the patio while I was still standing inside by the coffee counter. Like the big dork I am, I sat near him so I could at least soak in some of the culinary coolness. He was with his wife, baby and another woman and all looked happy and relaxed. Must try Home one of these days so I can actually experience his cooking!
