‘Top Chef’ stars visit the Revere Hotel to see ‘Chef’

“Top Chef” personalities Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons (above) — who are filming the 12th season of the reality cooking competition around Boston over the next few weeks — were the surprise VIPs at a screening of the new Jon Favreau film, “Chef,” at the Revere Hotel’s Theatre 1 on Monday night. The event was cohosted by Simmons’s publication Food & Wine to celebrate its May issue. Guests at the sold-out party were treated to a special, taped introduction to the film by Favreau, and to snacks by Hungry Mother chef Barry Maiden. Monday happened to be Simmons’s 38th birthday. We hear she celebrated later with friend-of-“Top Chef” Barbara Lynch.
