So - the nominations are in - some things as expected, and some surprises - good and bad. Pulling for the Girl and the Goat for best new restaurant. Not sure how Charles Phan found himself in the company of Kahan, Danko, and Andres. I'm pulling for the Brombergs on restaurateur... Melman lost it when he lost Gras, IMO. If Sue Zemanick wins, that will be good pub for Top Chef Masters, although she could be eliminated by may. I've met Tory McPhail and really liked him, so I'm pulling for him... plus it's Commander's - DUH.
