Which Gates location?
I'll have to double-check the last bottle I got on a nice recommendation from the spirit shop near Lincoln Center, was very pleased with it. Coeur de Lion, of course, is reliable but pricey.
I've always liked their chili.

I would heartily recommend Padova; lots of culture, wonderful food (hams, wines, etc) and eminently walkable.
I'm a pork guy as well, so would probably go with Kevin. Although Hung would be fun to watch cooking up a storm (as long as he doesn't serve the Smurf Village)
I think as repayment, Mizrahi should be forced to create edible underwear (of course modeled by Padma) for the cheftestants to sample.

As an aside, has anyone on here eaten at Rao's?

I agree; and while of course Colicchio knows his risotto, I've eaten enough in Italy to know that there are many local variations for what passes as the "acceptable" version of that dish, from Milan to Florence.
