The hit television show Top Chef is coming to Beantown.
Bravo, which airs the show, made the announcement Wednesday in partnership with the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau.
Here's more from Bravo:
"Cheftestants will battle it out knife-to-knife to see if they have what it takes to earn the title and culinary bragging rights.
And who will they be cooking for in the latest edition of our James Beard Award-winning series? Padma Lakshmi returns as host; Tom Colicchio returns as Head Judge and Gail Simmons returns as Judge. We'll also be featuring several guest judges, including Boston-based chefs and top celebrities. Production for Season 12 kicks off this Spring and the show will premiere on Bravo this Fall.
'Boston has always been at the top of our wish list as a location for Top Chef, not only because of its rich historical significance, but also because of its robust and ever-growing culinary scene,' Shari Levine, of Current Production for Bravo, said in a statement. 'Top Chef will showcase the many facets of the city which in turn will bring its fresh, unique flavor to Season 12.'
