Philly's "Top Chef" Jennifer Carroll eliminated from the competition

We're sorry to say that Jennifer Carroll, chef de cuisine at 10 Arts by Eric Ripert at the Ritz-Carlton, was eliminated tonight from Bravo's "Top Chef." Carroll, 34, a fan favorite, was the last contestant to be eliminated before next week's finale.

The Somerton raised Carroll, a Mt. St. Joseph's graduate was in her kitchen tonight cooking for a restaurant full of fans at 10 Arts, which has hosted "Top Chef" viewing parties all season long.

Despite her elimination, which resulted in a duck dish the judges deemed too salty, Carroll and 10 Arts will host a finale viewing party next Wednesday where guests can book a $65 dinner (before tax and tip)  that includes vodka and champagne tastings and a signed menu from Carroll.

(To book, call 215-523-8273 or go to Open Table)

Carroll, full of drive and competitive spirit during the season is surely disappointed in herself, but she had a hell of a ride, and we're sure will continue to be congratulated by patrons of her restaurant, and passersby for a long time to come.

Good job, Jen. You should be proud.
