Kosher-keeping New York fans of Top Chef's season three winner, Hung Huynh, are in for a tasty treat: The incredibly creative cook has officially begun a one-month stint as Executive Chef at Solo, a Midtown Manhattan Mediterranean-Asian fusion glatt kosher restaurant. Try saying that three times fast with your mouth full of pickled veal tongue. (Why is veal kosher, by the way, when it's so undeniably cruel?)
Huynh set up camp at Solo yesterday, and will remain in the kitchen there through early April. Though the restaurant has been inundated by a deluge of emails and phone calls, space is still available and reservations are welcome.
