A reliable source tells Eater that season 12 of Top Chef will be set in Boston, Massachusetts. Back in January Bravo announced casting for season 12, and Top Chef usually shoots once it's wrapped up. There's not much noise online about it, but just this week someone claimed that their brother is doing sound engineering for "Top Chef Boston." This is similar to how the New Orleans location for season 11 was accidentally revealed last year: by a job posting on Facebook. Expect non-stop Boston food cliches like chowder, baked beans, lobster, and tea parties. Spot any cheftestapants running around a Whole Foods? You know what to do.
