3 Washington Chefs to Compete in “Top Chef Season 10”

Find out which local toques will appear on the Bravo show, premiering in November.

This morning, Bravo revealed its lineup of cheftestants for the tenth season of Top Chef, which will take place in Seattle. And for those local fans who’ve been waiting for some Washington representation ever since the glory days of Mike Isabella and Bryan Voltaggio, the announcement brought good news: There are three DC-based chefs in the running.

Look for Bart Vandaele, the Belgian-bred chef/owner of Capitol Hill’s Belga Cafe; Dan O’Brien, the chef/owner of Shaw market/supper club Seasonal Pantry (which garnered three stars on our most recent list of 100 Best Restaurants); and Jeffrey Jew, who most recently led the kitchens at Marvin, BlackByrd, and the Brixton, but according to Bravo now lives in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The first episode premieres on November 7. Best of luck, chefs! Keep those knife kits in the game.

    That is awkward. And there are plenty of Seattle chefs who would have been great!

    Strange that there are no Seattle chefs in the game, but I love Gina Keatley, she's hot, a CNN Hero and can cook! She's got it all going on ;)
