A Surprise Sudden Death Quickfire

Tom Colicchio announced some big news on Friday, revealing on Twitter that he'll be closing down his casual downtown eatery, Craftbar, this April. "After 15 years of making people happy we have decided to close Craftbar. Lease is up and the rent is too damn high. [Thank you] to all our fans," he wrote, reiterating that his other establishments will remain up and running: "Craft, Riverpark, Fowler & Wells and 'Wichcraft are all still open in NY."

How to Watch

Watch Top Chef on Bravo and next day on Peacock.

Shortly after he broke the news (and food-lovers' hearts everywhere), Top Chef alum Dale Talde (who shut down his own beloved Pork Slope restaurant last October), sent the Top Chef judge some love on the restaurant's "great run."

And, Tom definitely appreciated all the kind words from the former Cheftestant and his fans.

Don't forget to tune into Tom on Top Chef every Thursday at 9/8c. Check out what's still to come this season, below.
