More from Top Chef: Chicago

Surprise! No sous chefs for the final day.

“This happens every day at a restaurant,” Richard says. “People don’t show up. I mean, it sucks.”

Stephanie’s menus consists of a seared red snapper, seared quail with lobster ravioli and quail egg, lamb medallions and ricotta poundcake.

“The best poundcake I’ve ever had,” Stephanie says.

“It could really come down to that dish for her,” Tom Colicchio says.

Stephanie things the cake sucks. Lisa tries to console her in her usual abrasive manner.

The first course: Best goes to Stephanie. She earns praise for the truffle oil infused with the flavor of stock. “It was good. Almost really good,” Colicchio says.

Second course: Stephanie under-cooked her leeks. Not a good sign. Antonio was sent home last week for under-cooked beans. Lisa’s soup takes the prize.

Third course: They hate both Richard and Lisa’s dishes. They love Stephanie’s. “It’s full of surprises and it works,” Colicchio says.

Looks like it could all come down to the dessert for Stephanie.

Dessert: Stephanie’s dessert was unrefined. Yikes. She seemed to take two of the courses, but is it enough?
