As Y&H’s colleague Warren Rojas points out over on Gut Check, tonight’s episode of Top Chef is all about NoVa. Well, mostly about NoVa. The quickfire challenge will involve Maryland blue crab as the main ingredient and Inn at Little Washington chef/owner Patrick O’Connell as the guest judge.

The elimination challenge will ask the contestants to cook a multi-course meal at Ayrshire Farm in Upperville, Va., where the owners operate the innovative farm-to-fork restaurant, Hunter’s Head Tavern. More video after the jump.
