In case you hadn’t noticed, Top Chef Canada premieres tonight on Food Network Canada. If you don’t have your viewing plans all sorted out, Grace, the College Street home of contestant Dustin Gallagher, is hosting a viewing party tonight in its upstairs lounge, starting around 8 p.m. Grace was closed on Mondays during the winter but is now open Monday through Saturday, just in time for Gallagher’s small-screen debut. Apparently the viewing parties will last for at least the first five weeks of the program and may continue after that. Could this kind of celebration hint at Gallagher’s success on the show? Guess we’ll just have to watch and find out.

Meanwhile, Origins Steve Gonzalez, also a contestant, will be making an appearance at a viewing party hosted by the Drake.

Top Chef Canada debuts tonight at 9 p.m. on Food Network Canada. Check back on Tuesday for a recap of the episode.
