Apparently the weekend of voting burnt out our dear readers. A mere 550 voted in the last round of Eater’s Fourth Annual Hottest Chefs Competition. Steve Benjamin of L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon at MGM Grand knocked out the competition to join Joseph Leibowitz of Tower Suite Café at Wynn Las Vegas, Anthony Meidenbauer, executive chef for Block 16 Hospitality, and Shawn McClain of Sage at Aria in the semifinals.
Now things get interesting. Some late entrants bring the field up to five chefs a day for the next four voting periods, giving readers more sexy chefs to choose from. Today, feast your eyes on Rob Moore of Jean Georges Steakhouse at Aria, Johnny Church of P.J. Clarke's at the Forum Shops at Caesars, Todd English at Olives at Bellagio and Todd English P.U.B. at Crystals, Olivier Dubreuil, Venetian and Palazzo property executive chef, and Geno Bernardo of Nove Italiano at the Palms.
Every vote counts. Be sure to tweet your vote to show off which chef you think is hottest. Let the voting begin.
