The 14th season of Top Chef is set to begin on December 1st and Philadelphia’s culinary scene is set to have ample representation.
Sylva Senat, the Philadelphia-based chef who pioneered Dos Tacos and opened Tashan, will appear as a contestant. His dynamic resume includes working at Buddakan, graduating from Philadelphia’s Careers Through Culinary Arts Program and remaining a mentor. He is part of the team currently planning Maison 208. Michael Solomonov, too, will appear as a guest judge this season.
Bravo released its first preview of the season yesterday and though Senat isn’t featured prominently in the preview, a back MRI and Padma flirting with the chefs make up for that.
