Top Chef Class Notes: Marcel on TV, Camille in the Kitchen, Sam Talbot on Standby

By

While Futon Critic shares some details about Marcel Vigneron’s new Syfy show, Marcel’s Quantum Kitchen (“based on the client's requests, Marcel will dream up a theme and cuisine for the event, which range from a fairy tale graduation party and a Goth-rock fashion show to a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new subway line”), his fellow cheftestant Sam Talbot’s restaurant in the Mondrian finally has an opening date: Curbed says the hotel is aiming for November.

Meanwhile, we’re told Camille Becerra (whose Orchard Street project has also been long in the works) is hosting a series of secret dinners with Alan Philips of “Cocktail Hour.” Click over to the Hunger NYC to RSVP for the first of the six-course dinners on May 13. The theme: “a modern and urban influenced interpretation of La Cuisine Bourgeoise, a French style of cooking that implements high-quality seasonal ingredients, prepared simply in a family style manner.”
