On last night's episode of Treme, David Simon's post-Katrina New Orleans-based HBO show, chefs David Chang, Tom Colicchio, Eric Ripert, and Wylie Dufresne had their cameos, playing themselves ("four guys with a lot of attitude," as a waitress describes them). Visiting the restaurant Patois headed by the chef Janette Desautel, they show up unannounced for dinner following NOLA chef John Besh's advice (who didn't call ahead!).
