Top Chef Season 7 City is....

(Haven't seen it yet mentioned, so sorry if this is a duplicate posting.)

Washington, DC.

I do hope the show sticks to food and they keep the politics out of it.

  1. i mentioned it in a thread on the DC board and in the one about last week's NY Times restaurant review after Sifton spilled the beans. but yes, it deserves its own thread now!

      Ahh, I just did a search on this board and scanned the subject lines, which is why I missed it.

    2. Interesting.

      I read recently that Washing D.C. was one of the top cities that young people would be predicted to flock to since there is an assumption there will increase the number of government jobs. The food scene in the surrounding area is already diverse and hopefully we see a great season coming up ahead. Hopefully the contestants will be great as well rather than last season with the top 4 being strong all the way through and everybody else being elimination fodder.

      1. Nice ... looking forward to season 7 in DC.

        There are a lot of nice places in DC and some great farms in the outskirts of DC, I hope they utilize the area to the fullest.

        And yes, I agree with Johnny L, I hope the constants are more diverse than last year, even though Kevin was my favorite from the start.

          While I agree that we all knew who would be in the top 4 from the first episode, the level of cooking on season 6 was the best they ever had on TC.

        2. Cool! I hope they explore the ethnic dining scene and not just the upscale places downtown.
