Top Chef in San Antonio

The rumor mill has been churning away for the past few weeks with news that the James Beard and Emmy Award Winning show, Top Chef, has been filming right here in the Alamo City. After much speculation, we now know that this is in fact the case. On August 9th, Bravo confirmed that the hit series is spotlighting three cities in Texas: San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas, for its Top Chef : Texas edition, and it’s undoubtedly going to bring with it a great deal of exposure to the lone star state.

La Prensa, a San Antonio based publication quoted our mayor Julian Castro saying, “Top Chef provides an innovative way to promote San Antonio’s growing stature as a culinary destination to a broad audience. Our city’s historic character and unique cuisine will be highlighted in a creative way.”

We couldn’t agree more. The local culinary talent here in San Antonio is something that has been a strong attraction and component to our culture, and it’s no wonder that successful shows like Top Chef are catching on to the buzz.

San Antonio, home to the newest Culinary Institute of America campus, and to a wide range of multi-talented “culinarians” and chefs, has become a center where culinary arts thrive. We think between the creativity and bustling culinary growth in San Antonio, the laid back vibe in Austin, and the upscale- luxe dining experience in Dallas, that Top Chef will have a great ninth season.

Emeril Lagasse and Hugh Acheson will be serving as the newest judges and they’ll be joining show regulars Padma Lakshmi, Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons as they journey across Texas. Top Chef : Texas will premier this Fall!

Stay tuned!
