Here’s some cool news…Charlotte chef Jamie Lynch, executive chef and partner at 5Church, will return for a second time as a contestant on Bravo’s “Top Chef” reality competition series.

Lynch will join 14 other contestants reappearing on the show in Season 17.

I’m not surprised Lynch is back, 5Church is one of my favorite places to eat in Charlotte. Good luck Chef Jamie!
