Chef Jen Carroll gained incredible popularity with her run on the the ultra fun 6th season of Bravo’s Emmy Winning hit “Top Chef” in Las Vegas while still working as executive chef at the iconic Eric Ripert’s “10 Arts” restaurant in Philadelphia. She then followed that up with a now famous explosion towards the judges on “Top Chef All Stars” which showed the edginess and sharpness that made her one of the series’ all time fan favorites, but now with the premiere of her new hit show “Life After Top Chef”, we get to see Jen leave the kitchen, and focus on life in the real world as she set sails into the Concrete Jungle and prepares to open her debut restaurant “Concrete Blonde” in the West Village, while dealing with all of the issues and circumstances that surround her in her daily life. The show follows her, and 3 other fan favorites from various “Top Chef” seasons including Richard Blais, Spike Mendelsohn and Fabio Viviani as they manage their restaurants and lives showing the fans that sometimes life outside the kitchen can be even more fun then inside.
Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down with one of the country’s elite chefs and one of my favorite people on the planet, Jen Carroll, to talk about the debut of her new hit “Life After Top Chef”, the process of opening her new restaurant Concrete Blonde in the West Village, the transition of leaving Philadelphia where she is an icon and moving onto the Big Apple, the Top Chef Cruise next year featuring some of the franchises judges and top culinary talents in a unique experience, the Top Chef Pop Up Restaurant debuting in NYC called “Top Chef Kitchen”, and soo much more!!
