I loved Top Chef last night because I loved Mike Isabella's smug-ass-smart-mouth-arrogant-know-it-all comments about how he could "do" vegetarian and win.
"My restaurant does 60 dishes and 20 are vegetarian, so I got this."
"My mom used to cook vegetarian for us, so I got this."
And then, when the judges denounce his "leeks as scallops" play on vegetarianism, and he says the rest of the dish was good, the judges simply say "No."
And even more than that, I loved watching him pack his smarmy-smug-ass-arrogant-know-it-all knives and go.
Whatever whatever Mike. It is what is is.
