While our New York sibling blog crows about new-found local Nate Appleman's appearance on The Next Iron Chef, we'd like to point out he's not the only one with ties to the 415. Dominique Crenn will represent San Francisco against a host of New Yorkers. Fully half of the ten-strong field works in New York, including Appleman, who the Food Network identifies as a "chef/butcher." Check out the rest of the contestants in the full press release at Grub Street New York.
