'Top Chef' results: Did Twin Cities contestant advance?


Spoiler alert: For readers who haven't viewed the latest episode of Bravo's "Top Chef" yet, major results are revealed in this story.

The "Restaurant Wars" episode of the Bravo reality TV competition "Top Chef" was the last for Minneapolis chef Sara Johannes, the Pioneer Press reported.

Johannes, an executive chef at Shoyu at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, was eliminated from the competition Wednesday night.

The final 10 chefs on the show were split into two teams for the episode, with each team tasked with opening their own restaurant in 24 hours.

A couple of big mistakes led to Johannes' elimination, the Pioneer Press said. She first failed to give cooks a ticket for the judge's table, which led to a delay in service, and then served browned butter cake that a judge said looked "kind of like a greasy cookie."

Johannes had a chance to redeem herself in the online challenge called "Last Chance Kitchen," but lost to California chef Louis Maldonado.

Reviewing the "Restaurant Wars" episode and Johannes' efforts on the show, the Star Tribune's "Table Talk" writer Marcus Michalik said the show "was cringe TV at its worst (best?), an hour of television that made me wince on more than one occasion."

Reality Rewind has a detailed recap of the show.

A native of Milwaukee, Johannes earned her degree in culinary arts from St. Paul College.
