The Hot Seat

2009_09_fabio.png Top Chef season five fan favorite Fabio Viviani (aka Mr. This Is Top Chef, Not Top Scallop) is putting the heat on old business partner Michael Takeda. Fabio claims he worked insane hours to get Cafe Firenze off the ground and was promised "15% ownership of the joint and $4,000 a month" by Takeda, but got zilch. So, he's suing for "unspecified damages." [TMZ]
