Nine-Ten Chef To Compete on Top Chef Season 11

Bravo has been slowly releasing the names of the chefs competing in Top Chef season 11, set in New Orleans, which will air starting October 2 at 10p ET/PT.

The West Coast contestants were just revealed, and among them is Ramon Bojorquez, the sous chef at La Jolla's NINE-TEN, where he works under executive chef and former Iron Chef America contestant Jason Knibb, who told Eater that he's "proud of Bojorquez and can't wait to see how well he represented San Diego on the show."

According to his bio, Bojorquez is an Arizona native who attended culinary school in Scottsdale; he loves "bold and spicy flavors" and his travel adventures have included "serving as a stage in Spain to fighting Muy Thai professionally in Thailand."

Eater heard that a chef from North Park's Zensei Sushi was in the running, but an injury took him out of the competition.
