HOUSTON — Houston, our moment has finally come.

"Top Chef," the acclaimed culinary competition show, is coming to Houston for its next season, according to Bravo.

Season 19 will bring back several "Top Chef" superstars as judges, including Houston chef Dawn Burrell, Tiffany Derry, Hung Huynh, Stephanie Izard, Melissa King, Kristen Kish, Kwame Onwuachi, Sam Talbot, Brooke Williamson and Claudette Zepeda.

Bravo hinted Houston was selected for its ethnically diverse and vibrant culinary scene.
