It's official: Jason Cichonski and Nick Elmi will be on Top Chef Season 11, as we guessed a little while back, and Bravo confirmed this morning. We're very proud to have two of our very best competing on the popular Bravo cooking competition, as they'll surely kick some serious ass in the kitchen.
The show will take place in New Orleans and kicks off on Wednesday, October 2 on Bravo. Cichonski and Elmi join a small contigent of Philly representation on the show that includes season 6 finalist Jen Carroll, and season 7 champ Kevin Sbraga. They've posted a preview teaser video, which we have added below. You can see Cichonski for a split second at the 00:12 mark of the video all the way to the left of the guy holding the plate, but no sign of Elmi. We promise he's there.
