Top Chef Season 12 Episode 2 saw the remaining, talented contestants do culinary battle using the Boston staple of surf and turf. How did that turn out?
Well, for one, Top Chef Season 12 Episode 2 made us extremely hungry. So in that sense it was an immediate and undisputed success, win or lose.
Tasked with coming up with various ways to make this delicious dish, the stakes were as high as the heat in a lobster pot ... or something like that.
All kidding aside, this hour was more emotional than most installments of Top Chef, because Boston's finest were the recipients of the meals created.
Knowing all that our police and fire personnel go through - in particular those who serve this great city that endured so much in 2013 - made for a moving scene.
Who's moving on to next week, though, with heroic kitchen efforts worthy of true American heroes? Who is leaving the show with their heads held high?
