Top Chef California’s six cities revealed

Top Chef California’s six cities revealed

The six cities–six!–that Top Chef California will visit during its season have been revealed, just as the state has now been confirmed as the location for the Top Chef’s 13th season.

The Los Angeles Times confirmed what Bravo later said in a press release, and what was clear early last month: the state of California will host the series.

That means a return to Los Angeles, the location of season two, and San Francisco, where season one was set. The show will also visit four cities nearby those two places: Oakland, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Palm Springs.

Tom Colicchio told the paper, “We’re going to be all over the place. We’re moving around a lot more than we ever moved around before. I don’t even know where we’re heading right now, but obviously this leads us into a lot of different options.

Production on Top Chef California begins in “late spring,” the paper says.
