Sure, cooking is the name of the game on Top Chef, but the house where the cheftestapants lived (1231 Bourbon St., in case you missed it) didn't go unnoticed. The Times-Pic lets everyone know that (thankfully!) "one scene not included in the premiere episode was a moment during which four of the chefs all sat in the giant master bath tub at the same time, just trying it out for size." Okay, then. The Twitterverse was on fire last night (mostly annoyed with the Mardi Gras bead overload) but there were a few design-related gems that deserve a shout-out.
