Local Hyde Park chef Damarr Brown has come in fourth place on Bravo’s competitive cooking show, Top Chef. Outside of the show, he works as the Chef de Cuisine at Virtue Restaurant and Bar..
Though he did not win the ultimate prize of Top Chef, he did win over viewers’ hearts as he did win the fan-favorite vote this season. The reality show audience came to appreciate Brown’s deadpan style and his incredible skills in the kitchen. At-home viewers saw him gallantly rescue plenty of dishes from disaster in Season 19 of the hit series.
While the Top Chef won a $125,000 prize, Damarr, who won the fan-favorite award got a cool $10,000 prize. We won’t spoil who the winner is this season. Brown isn’t the only Chicago resident to make it on the series.
