Our local representative in Bravo's "Top Chef" came up just short of winning the top title in the show's final episode which aired Wednesday night.
Hosea Rosenberg, who is a cook in Colorado, was the big winner. He receives $100,000, will be featured in several magazines and will make public appearances, the Washington Bussiness Journal reported.
Not to worry, Hall will likely do just fine from the publicity. Last year's local contestant (who did not advance very far), Spike Mendelsohn, opened his own eatery in Capitol Hill.
