Wednesday night's season premiere of Bravo's Top Chef was the finale for the multi-tatted Jennifer Zavala, who recently joined Xochitl in Society Hill after helping to create El Camino Real.
Her chile relleno stuffed with seitan did not impress the judges. She also ended up with bloody fingers from shucking clams.
Jennifer Carroll of 10 Arts, the other Philadelphia Jen on the show, nailed her clam ceviche and halbit dishes and proceeded to the next round.
One Atlanta blogger seems most impressed with the Northeast Philly-raised disciple of Eric Ripert: "Jennifer Carroll from Philadelphia seems to be Betty Draper character here - blonde and icy. She says she’s a 'freaking bitch in the kitchen' and has 'made enough boys cry.' Please, Jennifer, do it again."
