Well, here's an interesting blind item from Washington Post critic Tom Sietsema, who tweeted yesterday afternoon: "That not-so-top chef opening restaurants left and right? Even his closest food pals are leaving their plates full @ his operations." In some curious timing, Sietsema wrote it just about 10 minutes after tweeting a link to his mostly positive preview for former Top Chef contestant Mike Isabella's Bandolero. So maybe not that? Anyway, tipsters have written in confusion, so why not get down to some group speculation in the comments, yeah?
