What is it about a man who can cook? Mmm, mmm, mmm—and we're not just talking about the food. Campbell's Soup references aside, next to an accent and a cute dog, skills in the kitchen are definitely on our list of deal-makers. And if they have all three? Sold! So, ladies (and gays), how lucky are we that we scored a tour of celebrity chef Sam Talbot's Clinton Street digs? Originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, the Season 2 Top Chef alum not only boasts two restaurants in New York, the in-house eatery at Surf Lodge and the Mondrian Soho's Imperial No. 9, but also is the very proud owner of Tank and Diva, a bulldog and a cat that must get some serious leftovers. Get your mouses, trackpads, and appetites ready, why don't you, and explore our photo-tour of the easy-on-the-eyes chef's casa. Plus, there's also a Q&A and captions by Sam himself (he really shut us down re: dating!). Those tats, too? We can be into bad boys, especially with a side of, say, organic black chickpeas.
