Top Chef-ism.. and the restaurants they visited

marissaj | Dec 16, 201011:39 AM     26

I will preface this question by explaining that I keep strictly Kosher and so would never be able to visit these restaurants. I am also a mega, mega top chef fan.

Last night, they visited David Burke Townhouse and WD-50 (2 others as well, but no so curious about them). The food looks amazing, but seems to have concepts that I am extremely unfamiliar with.. I am sure that due to their TopChef fame, these restaurants are now packed and inundated with reservation inquiries... So.. Can someone please tell me - is the food REALLY that good? Or is it just the name people go for? (I suspect some will say its a mixture of the two, but I want to know if the food is really, genuinely amazing).
