Top Chef to Boston for season 12

Boston, Massachusetts, may be the host for season 12 of Bravo’s Top Chef, the network’s only remaining competition series.

Eater first reported the location based on a single Facebook post from a relative of a crew member that has since been deleted, though a tipster told the site the show is “most likely in Boston and they’ll be shooting in about a month.”

The New England city was considered for season 10, which ended up being filmed in Seattle.

Have any information? Let me know.

Update, April 30: Bravo today confirmed the location, and adding that Padma Lakshmi, Tom Colicchio, and Gail Simmons will all return. Bravo exec Shari Levine said in a press release, “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.”
