Top Chef All-Stars Ep 8 : An Offer They Can't Refuse


The chefs prepare a traditional three-course Italian meal in one of New York's most famous and exclusive restaurants, Rao's

Internationally-acclaimed designer Isaac Mizrahi is the guest judge for this Quickfire Challenge. And, for the first time in Top Chef history, the Quickfire will be judged on presentation and plating only -- not taste. In the Elimination Challenge, the chefs prepare a traditional three-course Italian meal in one of New York's most famous and exclusive restaurant's, Rao's. The Sopranos' Lorraine Bracco returns to Top Chef as the guest judge.
