Top Chef Season 4 premiered last night and I'm so excited for this season. NY is a great food city and the contestants seem pretty cool (some of them hahaa). Although there is no TRUE San Franciscan on the show (meaning born/raised/& practices in SF), Jaime works at Absinthe on Hayes. Seems like a cool chick, got some dope ink, and lotsa personality. Check it out:
