Restaurant Bucket List

I really love food.  But, I love it best if others are cooking it.  I am also a devoted Top Chef fan and although I thought Season 11 was a little more tricked up then I thought necessary, the right chef one.  And, if you have even skimmed my blog, you know that I have a special place in my heart for Chef Michael Voltaggio.  With that in mind, I have put together my Restaurant Bucket List.

If any you have had the pleasure to experience these restaurants, please share.

Michael Voltaggio

Sticking with my theme of bring people to your attention that I admire for not so much who they are but what they do and what they put out in this world. Michael Voltaggio deserves a place in my blog for being passionate about his craft. He is the Season 6 winner of Top Chef and recently opened a new restaurant in LA called INK. I can’t wait to try it.

Of course he is totally my type, very cute, confident (cocky – all about your perspective) tattooed man who is creative and passionate about what he does. If you have been to Ink. let me know what you thought. If you have negative opinions about Michael (see previous post) keep them to your self. I am not saying he is a great man, I don’t even know him. But, he can cook and has the skins on the wall to prove it.
