With a new season of "Top Chef" once again grabbing the attention of foodies everywhere, not to mention the esteem of the Academy, which just bestowed the show with an Emmy, it's not surprising that a successful stint on Bravo's hit series can quickly launch a relatively unknown chef into culinary rock star fame. Last season's winner Michael Voltaggio might be currently without a restaurant (the Langham closed for renovation), but you can still catch a glimpse of "Top Chef" winners and fan favorites at these LA restaurants.

The winner of Season 2, which was coincidentally filmed in Los Angeles, Ilan Hall has opened his own restaurant in LA's hottest 'hood: Downtown. His unusual menu has been coined "Scottish-Jewish fusion" with signature dishes like bacon-wrapped matzo balls. Not to be missed, however, is his take on an American classic. Called the Gribenes, the sandwich is a BLT, but with crispy chicken skin instead of bacon.
