Sara Nguyen has taken her high heels to Long Island since her defenestration from Top Chef 3 to gather her wits and knives before she joins ex–Top Chef Joey at Café des Artistes. Now that she’s off the show she can let the claws out about Howie’s low blows, women chefs holding their own, and how doling out meals from a catering truck to drunk fools is best when one has not just drunk a whole bottle of wine oneself.
