"Four bells is a bigger deal than the accolades, the $125,000 and the spread in Food & Wine magazine? 'I will give up everything I have to give up to get there,' Elmi told me early Thursday, about an hour after the Top Chef finale was shown on the East Coast."

— Top Chef winner Nicholas Elmi, as quoted by editor and Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Michael Klein, who says Elmi would trade his televised win for a "four bells" review of his restaurant Laurel. Elmi was the 11th season winner in the New Orleans-set reality cooking competition. The finale aired Feb. 5.
