Last night, the Bon Appetit Awards honored Daniel Boulud, the Kogi Truck, OpenTable, Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar, and others. Per one tweet, “DB accepting his bon ap award jokes he’s going to debut a Korean sausage called Momofuckyou.” Meanwhile, a far more grandiose gala was going on. No, not StarChefs’ Rising Stars, though they were going down, too. The Emmys! Despite all the noms, the Top Chef crew came away empty-handed — but their tweets from the scene were precious.
Bumped into E and Drama from Entourage on red carpet. They’re dwarves! #emmys http://twitpic.com/iioyz
Sitting with Top Chef crew and trying to figure out if any significance should be attached to out prominent seating. #emmys
That was Turtle, not Drama. I now feel like a heel because those guys were very nice to me. And I LOVE Entourage.
Reality category up next. Moment of truth approaches.
Why don’t they have a Best Reality Show Contestant category? Fabio would get my vote.
Padma and Tom was robbed! Jeff Probst called Joseph Campbell a “great storyteller.” Er, no. What a moron. #Emmys’
Did that sound bitter? Okay, I admit it. I’m bitter. #emmys
Balls. We didn’t win Best Reality Series either. Time to hit the bar. #Emmys
In the the Losers Enclosure, aka the bar. Verdict: If we want Top Chef to win next year, get some contestants with disabilities. #emmys
@ahaigh I flew six thousand miles to be here. I’m entitled to be bitter!
@diablocody are you at the Emmys? Let’s get drunk together ...
Tom Collichio just said: “But we did hire someone with disabilities -- you Toby.”
Ricky Gervais was wrong about this #Emmys crowd. The women here are smoking hot. There should be an award for Best Baps.

Emmy day! Red carpet stretches 4ever (3 hrs). Awards r long (3 hrs). Breakfast is key. Need long-lasting, dress-friendly options. Eggs? Yup.
Dress on (cherry red!), hair done, ready to roll. Just hope I do not melt on red carpet in 100 degree heat....wish us luck! #topchef #emmys
