"Top Chef: New York" Premieres Tonight

The new season of "Top Chef" premieres tonight at 10pm on Bravo. Host Padma Lakshmi is excited the show is filming in New York this season "Obviously shooting in New York lent itself to a lot of just amazing things that New York has to offer - you know, a lot of different ethnic cuisines. That sort of worked itself into the challenges at a lot of different locations." The new season will feature Padma as well as judges Tom Colicchio, Gail Simmons of Food & Wine magazine and new judge Toby Young. The cast this season will consist of 17 contestants ranging in age from 21-44 and will have a wide variety of culinary credentials. Padma said "They're an interesting bunch. I thought they really held their own. I think the one thing I noted this season is that it was really interesting to watch the evolution of more than a few of them. I think they really were very quick learners. And so some of the contestants over the course of the challenges and weeks really surprised us."

Here's a sneak peek at the new season...
