The people have spoken. Congratulations to Maple Avenue Restaurant's Tim Ma. The chef beat out Range's Bryan Voltaggio for the illustrious and/or ridiculous title of Hottest Chef of the Year. Vienna neighborhood staple Maple Avenue Restaurant has been around for almost four years, serving up quirky American food — not to mention one of Eater's favorite Bloody Marys.
Ma will go on to compete against other chefs around the country for a shot at the Hottest Chef Eater National title.
