Over at the mothership, it's Top Chef rumormongering time: Back in February, it was rumored that Bravo was considering Boston, Seattle, and Portland as the possible host cities for the tenth season of the popular, reality cooking competition.
And today, the Boston Herald reports that Beantown is probably out of the running, setting up a Top Chef: Northwest showdown. According to the Herald, "[Boston] and its local businesses failed to cook up the cash and a big enough sponsorship deal" to secure the series. Word is that it's down to Seattle or Portland, with the winning city having "coughed up free hotel rooms." What say you, @mayormcginn? Or has anyone spotted Bravo location scouts in the area recently? You know what to do.
