Welcome to Eater's annual Hottest Chef Competition in what is our first-ever year determining the hottest chef in Washington, DC. We'll be doing a lot of voting over the next couple of weeks with the ultimate victor going on to compete nationally against the winners from our sister cities. But we'll worry about that later.
Today, we're kicking things off with Bibiana's Nick Stefanelli, pitted against Adam Sobel of Bourbon Steak, Enzo Fargione of Elisir and Will Morris of Brasserie Beck. Polls will close in 24 hours when the next round of voting begins. May the sexiest chef win.
