So our Chicago boy scores a win, at last, and makes it to the finals -- good for him. But are his knives sharp enough to cut it with Hung and Casey and take the whole megillah? You'll know a week from tonight! Thanks for watching, reading, and posting. And, by the way, as this season winds to a close, let me thank you all again for joining the conversation, here. Your insights (well, many of them) have been fascinating, and I've learned a lot from you. Like, for example, the difference between a habanero and a Scotch Bonnet, where the Slider got its name, and the fact that about 5% of you are Republicans (a good percentage, that).
So, since you're so smart, tell me: Who do YOU think will be Top Chef? See you at the finals!
