You, guys, that is Paul Prudhommme in a jaunty little ascot critiquing Top Chef-testants on their recreations of a dish that he made famous at Commander’s Palace. Emeril Lagasse and Tory McPhail were at the table doing the same, but no one elicited hardcore nerd-outs like Paul.
We’re also fairly certain that Commander’s has the most charming all-lady FOH/admin team we’ve ever seen. Check out a clip of the kiss-kissing, muah-muahing, and hey y’alling below. It’s stunning.
