Sioux Falls, South Dakota's long wait is over: Chris Hanmer, winner of Top Chef: Just Desserts season two, has opened CH Patisserie. Hanmer announced in January that he'd signed a lease in downtown Sioux Falls, where he moved to be closer to his wife's family. Hanmer's menu will be pretty standard French pastry fare, including maracons, tarts, cookies, bonbons and more. According to the interview with the Argus Leader below, Hanmer's Las Vegas business will remain open and he'll commute between the two. He also mentions his goal is to open new locations of CH Patisserie, eventually.
