HELL'S KITCHEN continues to heat up as the Top 4 chefs move one step closer to a "Head Chef" position at Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, the East Coast's leading resort destination. On Thursday, April 23 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the chefs remaining in HELL'S KITCHEN � Paula DaSilva of Coconut Creek, FL; Andrea Heinly of Reading, PA; Danny Veltri of Edgewater, FL and Ben Walanka of Chicago, IL - compete head-to-head in a "taste it, now make it" challenge where each participant must recreate the Ramsay-created dish they just tasted.
