Another Serving of Top Chef!

by at . Comments

That's right. Bravo has officially ordered another helping (har har) of its acclaimed reality TV series Top Chef, the Scoop has learned.

We Want Thirds!Top Chef is the No. 1 rated food series in all of cable TV, and one of the top reality TV shows in existence. We're happy it will make its return for a third season of culinary competition.

A nationwide casting call for season three of Top Chef fires-up this spring with cook-offs in Dallas, Las Vegas, Miami, New York, and San Francisco.

In February, Bravo devoured the competition (we're here all day, ladies and gents) with the Season 2 finale of Top Chef, with a delectable 3.896 million viewers and 2.879 million adults age 18-49 tuning in.

Bespectacled New Yorker Ilan Hall won the second season finale in what was the #1 telecast on cable for the night and even beat ABC's Primetime in head-to-head competition in viewers 18-49 (2.879 vs. 2.705).

Bravo has not announced whether Padma Lakshmi, who replaced Katie Lee Joel as host, will return for the third season, the premiere date for which has not been set. The show will take place in Miami, Florida.
