The Cat's Out of the Bag: Arnold Myint to Compete on 'Top Chef' Season 7

Posted By on Thu, May 13, 2010 at 6:19 PM

Now, I'm gonna be forthright with you: I'm not a regular viewer of Top Chef. I'll watch it occasionally, if it's on, but mostly it just reminds me of why I don't work in food service anymore. I'm not cut out for that level of intensity. I love food and I love cooking, but I am just way too mellow to mess with a pro kitchen. Give me the infrequent paychecks and relative instability of freelance journalism over a steam table and a screaming sous chef any day.

Which makes it all the more impressive to me that some folks not only thrive in the kitchen but thrive in the kitchen on TV. Here's hoping that PM/Cha Chah/Suzy Wong's House of Yum chef-owner Arnold Myint falls into the latter category on the new season of Bravo's Top Chef — if I'm gonna have a pony in this race, I'd like to see 'im win.

I contacted Arnold at Cha Chah tonight, but all interviews need to be cleared with the press people. Ya know, like they do it in Hollywood — how fucking cool is that!!! Also, it's kinda awesome that Nashville is going to have an actual food-scene representative on national TV, as opposed to those squirrel eaters on Bizarre Foods that one time.

The new season of Top Chef starts Wed., June 16 at 8 p.m.
