Apparently, "Top Chef D.C." contestant and local Timothy Dean is getting used to being told to hit the road.

The D.C. native and owner of "Prime Steak House" in Baltimore was told to pack his knives on Wednesday night's episode of the competitive cooking show.

That cut comes a week after the chef filed a lawsuit alleging he was evicted from a property he hoped to open at National Harbor.

He is suing the Maryland restaurant and retail complex, saying the company changed the locks on the property and sabotaged his plans to open the "first black-owned restaurant in the complex," according to the Associated Press.
