Top Chef in Santa Barbara?!

We'll have to set our TiVo to January 17th! "Seduction in Santa Barbara" Now...if that title doesn't get your savory interests!

Apparently, it was filmed here in town at Epiphany (which is co-owned by Kevin Costner) The restaurant is lovely to look at inside. I went to the bar section one evening for "Happy Hour" (my friend took me there for my birthday.) and was completely disappointed. The "nibbles" were extremely minimal and people were battling for them. (Nothing makes you so, well, "non-Happy" than having being elbowed in line to pick up a single crusty shrimp.") They did not really sit well in my stomach, hate to say, I did not feel well afterwards.

Kudos to the bartendress, though! She was fabulous!

Guess I will have to go back and try them for a "real" meal. Give them a second chance, before they get mobbed from other local Top Chef afficionados.

For some fun "Top Chef" blogging fun, check out "Blogging Top Chef, They Cook...We Roast" and "Top Chef 2. They Cook. We Dish." and "Amuse-Biatch. TV's Top Chef and Other Matters Gustatory."

Sign the Petition for Ted Allen to be Top Chef Mentor!

Epiphany is one of my favorite downtown restaurants! SB Wine and Dine has a review here: http://www.wineanddinesb.com/fall2006/epiphany.html

We were in Epiphany yesterday evening when the windstorm blew the powerlines down. With the exception of Michelle, who seemed a little frantic and did far too much unecessary running around in the dark, the staff took it all in stride and made an adventure out of the whole thing. The food was, as ever, incredible. Kudos!
