Several Bites readers identified Richard Blaise as the chef to beat, and he's made it to the finals against Mike Isabella from Top Chef's season 6. Now that it's down to a coin flip, who's your pick to win? I'll go with Blaise, since he's the closest we have to a local with restaurants in Atlanta and Birmingham and he missed the birth of his child to compete in the final. Of course, Isabella said he missed his own honeymoon, but I can't see how that could be possible unless the bride went with someone else. That sounds like a loser to me.
Make your guesses in the comments, and we'll hold folks accountable at the Scene's upcoming Iron Fork competition next month. We do have time stamps on these comments so don't try to sneak in a winner after the episode airs.
