Crimson, the restaurant in the former Kelley and Ping space, is the setting for the new reality show The Chopping Block, we've learned. The show, an American version of a British Marco Pierre White vehicle, features teams of couples competing to run a restaurant. A source close to the restaurant tells us that the show has been filming there for several weeks and calls chef Franklin Becker a consultant for the program. Becker has also been seen at Marion’s, down the street, a restaurant that has been closed for renovations for several weeks and may only be alive thanks to the show. Neither location is a dummy restaurant; the show intends for them to operate as legitimate operations more The Restaurant than Top Chef.
