The Washington Post has the list of chefs that will be competing on Top Chef Masters, season five, and Bryan Voltaggio is on it.
The Volt and Range chef will compete against such powerhouses as Richard Sandoval (whose Zengo and Masa 14 restaurants are here), David Burke of David Burke Townhouse in New York and Los Angeles' Neal Fraser. Here's the full list on Eater National.
Voltaggio, a veteran of the original Top Chef, was a suspected contestant on the reality show after he was spotted running around a Whole Foods in January in Los Angeles, where the show is being filmed. Tim Carman interviewed the chef about the gig, and Voltaggio told the reporter he was more nervous this time around, being around such heavyweight chefs.
