Top Chef announced its lineup for season ten today, and a former Charleston chef has made the cut.

Anthony Gray is the former executive chef of High Cotton, the Maverick Southern Kitchens restaurant with locations here and in Greenville. For a while Gray oversaw both restaurants, but he recently left for Atlanta, where he is now the chef for Southern Art and Bourbon Bar, the latest restaurant from Top Chef Master Art Smith.

I guess I have to watch this season now that I have someone to root for.
