Which Chicago Chef Has The Nicest Teeth?

IzardF&W.jpg It's rare that someone asks a food question that hasn't ever crossed our minds. That's why this survey made us pause. Apparently, the Chicago Dental Society wanted to know which Chicago chef had the nicest teeth, so they sent out a survey. If dentists weren't conducting this survey, it'd be super creepy, but since they have a professional interest (or at least plausible excuse for one) it's okay.

HuffPo reports that 200 dentists responded to the survey, which included such celebs as Rick Bayless, Graham Elliot, Art Smith and Grant Achatz. As a side note, we're not sure we've ever seen Grant Achatz or Art Smith's teeth. Could this survey be biased simply by which chef tends to smile with their mouth open?

Unsurprisingly, media darling (and owner of pretty chompers) Stephanie Izard won with 60 percent of the vote. We were pulling for Bayless, since he has such a great smile, but he only got 13 percent.
