Eater: The winners of Top Chef usually go on to do things like open restaurants and score James Beard awards. Hosea Rosenberg, the Season 5 winner and the epitome of “failing upwards,” is participating in a culinary event hosted by the Colorado Lottery.

Grub Street: Hey, guys! Let’s turn Williamsburg, Brooklyn into a parody of itself by putting a hipster restaurant inside an Urban Outfitters! Man, this is a freaking ouroboros of irony.
