What Chicago chef has the best smile?

February 06, 2013|By Adam Lukach, @lucheezy | RedEye

Ever wondered what celebrity chef in Chicago has the best smile? No? Well, someone did, because the Chicago Dental Society was surveyed about just such a question in "preparation" for its 148th Midwinter Meeting, and more than 200 dentists weighed in on who has the best set of pearly whites.

The winner, garnering 60 percent of the vote, was Stephanie Izard, the Girl and the Goat chef and former "Top Chef" winner. Grant Achatz and Rick Bayless took second and third, respectively, but they were distant runners-up, kind of like only getting floss when you really wanted a new toothbrush at the dentist.

When asked for a comment about the honor, Izard wrote in an email, "I guess I can thank my dentist from over the years ... especially the childhood one that gave me the laughing gas while fixing my cavities."
