Hot Chefs Round 6: Piekarski, Serrano, Moonen, Vongerichten, Bell

eater-hottest-chef-2012.jpgOh, it got very hot in the kitchen yesterday. All day long, voting shifted back and forth between Rob Moore of Jean Georges Steakhouse at Aria and Olivier Dubreuil, Venetian and Palazzo property executive chef, in Eater’s Fourth Annual Hottest Chefs Competition. In the end, Olivier Dubreuil, came out the winner.

He joins Steve Benjamin of L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon at MGM Grand, 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.

Today, a new set of chefs competes. We pit Matthew Piekarski of First Food and Bar at the Palazzo, Julian Serrano of Picasso at the Bellagio and Julian Serrano at Aria, Rick Moonen at RM Seafood at Mandalay Bay, Jean-Georges Vongerichten of Prime Steakhouse at Bellagio and Jean Georges Steakhouse at Aria and Thomas Bell, executive pastry chef for the Hard Rock Hotel against each other for our round six battle of the hottest chefs.

Be sure to tweet your vote to show off which chef you think is hottest. Let the voting begin.
