Hottest-chef-2012-logo.jpgThings got super hot in the first set of Eater's Hottest Chef competition, but at the wire it was IPO's Trevor Hoyte who moved on to the semi finals with nearly 38 percent of the vote, while early favorite Julian DeFranco (Spiaggia) slipped to second place with 33 percent of the vote.

Up today to see if they make it to the next round with Hoyte: Chef Chao (Union Sushi), Jimmy Bannos, Jr. (The Purple Pig), Stephanie Izard (Girl & The Goat), Derek Simcik (Atwood Cafe) and Richie Farina (Moto). Get ready to vote!
