Also, it seems ths season has an "Adventure theme"

That does sound awful,, Twyst. It's all fun and games until someone gets a spiral fracture.

So Douglas Keane won it. He deserved it, but I'm a little sad that Bryan Voltaggio just missed the top honors again. He would have been a worthy winner too.

We like Keane and we liked Cyrus when we dined there a long time ago.

We recently had dinner at Bryan's Range and it was very good.

I'm surprised Burke made it this far - kinda floating by on his reputation, because I can't imagine he cooks very much any more.

I've always thought Volt was one of the best places around, and I have always enjoyed Table 21 at Volt immensely. Several times.
