Curtis Stone, the 35 year old Australian food star and host of America's Next Great Restaurant just threw down a cool $3.1 million for a new six-bedroom manse in L.A.'s Hollywood Hills. Stone is planning to open an L.A. restaurant soon. "If you're going to say you're a chef, you need to cook somewhere, which is why I'm opening a restaurant. I miss cooking in a restaurant," says Stone. We hope he'll open in the Hollywood and Highland area which is finally getting some interesting concepts after being a veritable restaurant ghost town years ago.
