Hung’s Top Chef 3 winning four-course meal on the menu at Caesars Palace bar

One of Top Chef‘s biggest weaknesses is that viewers can’t really judge what they’re seeing for themselves. We have to trust the judges when they describe the taste of the contestants’ food, unlike on Project Runway, where we can look at a dress and have all of the same information that the judges have when making their decision. Bravo has tried to collapse this distance before–for the second season, first season chef Lee Anne Wong hosted a web show where she showed viewers how to prepare the winning chef’s dish–and various former cheftestants have their own restaurants where the public can try their new cuisine.

Starting tomorrow, viewers will have the chance to sample Top Chef 3 winner Hung’s entire four-course winning meal from the finale. Specifically, his food is joining the menu of the Bubbles Bar at Casesars Palace in Las Vegas. The bar is connected to Restaurant Guy Savo–where Hung used to work as a sous chef.

The bar, Jaunted reports, “is a more casual take on Guy Savoy, one of the priciest restaurants in Vegas. With a communal table and smaller, shareable portions, you’ll be able to strike up a convo about Hung with your fellow diners–even if you’re not sampling his menu.”

Hung’s four-dish meal “starts with “‘fish and chips’ (hamachi and potato chips) before moving to sugar and coconut glazed prawns with radish salad. Sous vide duck with mushroom ragout takes center stage before a chocolate cake finale,” Jaunted notes.
