Amidst news that the next season of the high-stakes cooking show will soon start filming right here in New York City, Eater is pushing a rumor that the cheftestants will be housed in Williamsburg. But if stalking the stabby streets of Billyburg isn’t your speed, you can get guaranteed access to past Top Chef stars at the Astor Center, which is hosting a series of cooking classes starting July 7th. Each class costs $195 and gets you a book, cooking demo, a three course "signature" meal, and a chance to stargaze at chefs like Sam Talbot and this year’s winner Stefanie Izard. [Via Grub Street]
