“Top Chef” goes to Fenway Park, with Dennis Eckersley and Dan Shaughnessy


I’m a big “Top Chef” fan and tonight’s episode will take place at Fenway Park in Boston, with Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley as a guest.

Here’s a preview clip, in which Eckersley tells a story about the aftermath of Kirk Gibson taking him deep in the World Series and Padma Lakshmi responds by saying: “You should have played for the Yankees.”

HBT readers with keen eye may also spot Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy, of whom we’ve never been particularly big fans. My sincere hope is that Tom Colicchio yells at him about something.
