Top Chef to take on the Big Apple

June 16, 2008

In a move that is long, long overdue, Top Chef appears headed for New York City next season.

New York Magazine’s Grub Street blog, citing another food blog, said former

contestant-turned culinary advisory Lee Ann Wong told the blog that New York would indeed be the host of next season’s Top Chef.

Wong also voiced some reservations she has about filming the reality show in New York:

“It’s definitely going to create some challenges for us. Hopefully people will be cool enough to respect what we’re doing and not follow us around with cameraphones.”

It’s almost hard to believe that New York hasn’t been the show’s main setting in the past after lesser Foodie towns (namely Miami) have had their own seasons.

I’ll be interested to see how the show’s producers get along with any of the hundreds of food bloggers currently residing in the tri-state area and how much information about the chefs and the challenges leak before
