Put up your dukes. Round 2 of Eater Chicago's Hottest Chef in Chicago competition starts now. We narrowed the list from 36 chefs down to six and over the course of the next two days, we'll take that number down to two.
Today, we pit three hot guys against each other: Perennial's Ryan Poli, Chris Curren, the exec chef of Elate and Blue 13, and Boka's Giuseppe Tentori. Polls will remain open until about noon on Friday and the winner of this heat will compete on Monday for the title of hottest chef in Chicago. Whoever takes that, will move on to compete against the winners of each Eater city for the national title. Show no mercy—let the voting begin.
