Could Top Chef Be Coming to DC?

Earlier this week, we heard rumblings that Bravo will film the next season of Top Chef, its hit kitchen competition show, in DC. While producers wouldn’t confirm the rumor, Top Chef has recently paid a lot of attention to our city. Last season, three chefs had ties to Washington: Michael Voltaggio, who grew up in Walkersville, Maryland, won, and brother Bryan, chef/owner of Frederick’s Volt, came in second. Zaytinya chef Mike Isabella was in the running, too. The season before, local caterer (and third runner-up) Carla Hall won our hearts with her hootie-hoos. To top it off, Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio told the Wall Street Journal in December, “I think DC and Philly are having a great moment. It would be great to film in both of those places.” As if the P Street Whole Foods wasn’t crowded enough… .

If Top Chef does come here, what challenges should they give to the cheftestants? Let us know in the comments!
