A Night Out With Colicchio & Friends

While Tom Colicchio doesn't interact with contestants while filming Top Chef, a night out after the show has wrapped is apparently fair game. A local journalist tagged along with the star chef for a long night of boozing and eating in Atlanta with former contestants Kevin Gillespie and Richard Blais, along with a host of chefs from his Craft restaurants. Topics of discussion ranged from MTV's Jersey Shore to Gillespie's dislike of Korean food. On the subject of food blogs, Colicchio thinks they're too hateful, but Blais sees it differently, "One blog said I was No. 5 on the list of celebrities who look like old lesbians... How cool is that?" [Access Atlanta]
