Nyesha Arrington, the Executive Chef at Wilshire Restaurant in Santa Monica, California, is most recently known for being a competitor on the completed season nine of Bravo’s reality cooking show Top Chef.
Prior to the exposure from participating in Top Chef: Texas, this quarter-Korean chef had risen quickly in the culinary world and is considered a promising chef to watch. In fact, she was recently listed on Zagat’s 30 Under 30: LA’s Hottest Up-and-Comers list.
Although Nyesha did not win Top Chef: Texas, she did finish very respectably as one of the top 16 finalists. In addition, she placed fifth in the online Top Chef: Texas Fan Favorite contest (out of 18).
We were able to cover Nyesha’s background, career, Top Chef experience and are pleased to present this interview with her.
