Top Chef is finally FINALLY doing a season here in Houston. A few seasons ago, you might remember, Top Chef did a Texas season, but they wanted Houston to pay up to be included, and we were like, “Nah.” I don’t know if Houston chose to pony up this time around, but if we did, good. 1. The economy in the pandemic world is a very different animal than in the pre-pandemic world, and if this gives a boost to our tourism and hospitality industries, it’s worth it, but 2. I’m glad we’re not being lumped in with other Texas cities and getting an entire season (or most of a season, they always take the finale someplace else) devoted to our wonderful, inventive, diverse, exciting culinary scene. It’s time the world sees what we’ve been enjoying down here. And now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go figure out how to stalk this production.

One thought on “‘Top Chef’ comes to the nation’s fourth-largest city. Finally.

  1. Going back about 2 years I had a car break down. The tow truck driver had been an interpreter for the US army in Iraq. He managed to get a visa for himself and his family. Now while he spoke 4 languages he could only read/write 1 so he couldn’t get a translating job for the govt business etc. Despite this he was happy to be here.
