Top Chef Alums

arianne.jpg A local paper in New Jersey catches up with Season 5 Top Cheffer Ariane Duarte today, and gets the scoop on her life after Top Chef. While she describes that taping of the show as one of her all time worst experiences, she notes that ever since the she got kicked off, her restaurant CulinAriane has been slam-packed. The Montclair, NJ, restaurant has done so well, in fact, that they've had to expand the number of tables, and add a"chef's table" program. This is not the first time we've seen a Top Chef alum turn to a restaurant-within-a-restaurant concept. [Star Ledger]
