Bravo’s Top Chef All-Stars Night at the Museum episode, aired on December 8, featured two teams cooking to win the favor of children and their parents, with one group preparing a plant-based menu. The chefs were placed into two groups, Team Tyrannosaurus and Team Brontosaurus, the latter requiring a vegetarian menu.
