‘Top Chef’ judges are here filming — and dining

“Top Chef” is in town, filming Season 12 of the Bravo TV series with host and judge Padma Lakshmi and judges Tom Colicchio, Gail Simmons, and Hugh Acheson. Locations are top secret.

But where the celebs are dining isn’t as hush-hush. Tweetosphere chirps offer judge sightings as do photos from the judges themselves. The four were happy to tell us where they’ve been, sometimes with a small child in tow. They tend to visit the chefs they already know: Barbara Lynch, Ken Oringer, Jamie Bissonnette, Tiffani Faison, and Ana Sortun.
