Best celebrity chef
Iron Chef winner Ken Oringer (left) is the chef and owner of seven Boston area restaurants, including South End gems Toro and Coppa, where every Bostonian must go before they die. Eric Ripert (right) is the executive chef at New York's Le Bernardin, one of the most decorated restaurants in the country. He's also friends with Anthony Bourdain, which is just fine in our book. We'll say it again: New York and Boston are home to some very fine restaurants. Chalk it up as a victory for both sides, and just be thankful none of us have to eat anything made by Paula Deen.
