Top Chef Casting Season 12 in Its Customary Alum-Owned Restaurants
As we’ve all come to learn, once you sign a waiver with The Magical Elves: you’re shackled for life, Bravo owns the essence of your soul, etc. And, as with last year’s Season 11 casting, Season 12 will cast at various Top Chef alums’ restaurants across the country.
