Bravo’s Top Chef Houston kicks off on Thursday, March 3rd 2022.

The show is made up of 14 episodes and airs each Thursday at 8/7c.

Top Chef Houston is the show’s 19th season and Padma Lakshmi returns as host while the judging panel includes Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons. Plus, each week an all-star guest judge joins the panel as well as a culinary icon.

Filming Top Chef Houston season 19

Filming for Top Chef Houston began in September 2021.

The show being filmed in Houston is a pretty big deal as Top Chef has been to Texas before, during season 9 and filmed in other cities such as Austin and Dallas – but not Houston.

Of the chefs competing, Evelyn Garcia is the only Top Chef season 19 contestant who hails from Houston, Texas and is representing the city.
