Top Chef: The Tour Comes to Adams Morgan

By Julia Beizer

Our local "cheftestants" will be showing off their skills at Marie Reed Elementary School this Saturday as Top Chef: The Tour comes to town. Spike Mendelsohn and Carla Hall will be the star attractions at the event, which includes chef demonstrations, tips and tastings. Sixty chairs are available under the tent for each of the four seatings: 10:30 a.m., noon, 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.

So, how do you snag one of the seats? Not easily. Bravo's free tickets have already been given away on through their Web site. Adams Morgan Main Street will be auctioning a handful of front row seats to raise money for the neighborhood group's programs. The auctions will be held at 7 p.m. tonight at Duplex Diner and 7 p.m. on Thursday at the Grill from Ipanema.

You don't necessarily need a ticket to see the event. There will be plasma screens set up outside the tent and, if seats inside aren't taken at showtime, Adams Morgan Main Street's Lisa Duperier tells me the Bravo folks will give them away to those standing outside. According to Duperier, only the seated folks get to taste the chef's creations, though.

Carla Hall, who works out of Wheaton, MD will be participating in Taste of Wheaton (May 17) this year. I don't know whether she will be making an appearance, but word is you can taste her food for $15.
