NEW ORLEANS — Bravo’s hit cooking competition show “Top Chef” is heading to New Orleans.
The cable TV network said recently that “the vibrant food scene of New Orleans will be a welcome addition in the 11th season of the series.”
The statement also said Bravo is working in partnership with the New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corp. and the Louisiana Office of Tourism, but no other details were released.
Shooting dates have not yet been announced.
The show isn’t without some New Orleans connections. One season concluded with an episode set in the city, and chef Emeril Lagasse, who owns several local restaurants, has served as a judge for the past two seasons.
Previous host cities for the series include New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago and Las Vegas.
