Chef Curtis Stone became a household name after getting some quality time on-camera with shows like TLC's Take Home ChefToday on NBC and Bravo's chef superstar spin-off Top Chef Masters. Now that he's at the top of the TV chef mountain, he's decided to open his very first “tiny little restaurant” and guess what? It's really, really good, especially when fun Indian snacks pop up unexpectedly on the menu. Like this one.

Most celebrity chefs start by making their names as chefs, then branch out into the realm TV stars. Not Curtis Stone. While he spent time earlier in his career in some truly impressive kitchens, he really became a household name after getting some quality time on-camera with shows like TLC's Take Home ChefToday on NBC and Bravo's chef superstar spin-off Top Chef Masters. Now that he's at the top of the TV chef mountain, he's decided to open his very first “tiny little restaurant” and guess what? It's really, really good, especially when fun Indian snacks pop up unexpectedly on the menu, like this crispy spiced onion bhaji. Says Stone:

"I'm an Aussie, I've lived in America, I lived in London, I worked for French chefs, so it's a little bit of all of that stuff. We have an onion bhaji on the menu. To have an Indian snack is really different in this kind of environment. We haven't got strict barriers around it that say 'if it's Chinese, we can't do it.' If it's amazing, we will do it."
