IMDB for Restaurants and Chefs
Now that the food world has plenty of stars, those of us who don't have the diligence to follow Eater's Plywood Reports and Grub Street's Chef Shuffles need some way to track them and their ever-changing projects. Enter ChefDB.com, which catalogs shifts among the sous-vide masters and impossible-to-score tables—giving you a place to dig up the James Beard Foundation's Rising Star Chef in 2004 if you so shamefully forgot (Allison Vines-Rushing, then of Jack's Luxury Oyster Bar). If you're looking for a real time suck, play the chow-focused version Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon: Six Degrees of Thomas Keller.
