Susan Feniger, Top Chef Masters Season 2
Restaurants: Mud Hen Tavern, Border Grill
Always bringing positive vibes to the kitchen, Susan disappointed a picky bride in episode five, but she didn’t mind the loss. Her and Mary Sue Milliken's long standing restaurant Border Grill, cooks up insanely flavorful dishes inspired by the cuisines of Oaxaca and the Yucatan. Ceviches, Two Hot Tamales’ famous skirt steak and corn, tacos, and of course, homemade tamales, are served to their loyal fanbase. Her neighborhood spot, Mud Hen Tavern, serves updates on classics like chicken and waffles, disguised as croquettes, and meatballs made with lamb and served with yogurt and mint chimichurri -- and the dumplings from the separate-menu lunch window outside are among the best in town.
