It's officially unofficial - culinary reality show Top Chef is filming in Seattle.

Rumors have been circulating for weeks about Top Chef crews scouting Whole Foods stores in the area (with the Redmond location likely being the winner). Then last week, Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi was spotting dining at Seattle's Mistral Kitchen.

While the Top Chef folks have yet to make an official statement, their crews were spotted filming at the Pike Place Market. (Evening Magazine's Kim Holmcomb was on location and snapped a photo of all the action.)

Camera crews at the scene were reportedly keeping mum on the who and the what, but the secret was out once Padma was reportedly spotted behind a plastic curtain.

We're still trying to get details of what's to come, but we'll post any updates as they become available.
