‘Top Chef’ winner Kristen Kish taking over kitchen at Menton

Kristen Kish, who reigned supreme on season 10 of Bravo’s “Top Chef,” is the new chef de cuisine at Menton, owner Barbara Lynch announced Friday. The Boston-based Kish has worked for Lynch since 2011, most recently at Stir. “I am thrilled that Kristen will be leading the kitchen at Menton and I look forward to working with her,” Lynch said in a statement. “As the chef at Stir, Kristen demonstrated her creativity and talents each evening with a new menu. Watching her — along with the rest of the country — ultimately win ‘Top Chef’ reinforced what I already knew: She is an exceptionally gifted chef with amazing heart, integrity, and an incredible understanding of what it takes to create beautiful and delicious dishes.”
