This morning New York Magazine’s Grub Street blog released the list of cheftestants who will compete in Season Six of Bravo’s beloved “Top Chef” franchise, and two Seattle toque-wearers made the cut.

Fans of shuttered Capitol Hill breakfast spot Crave can again enjoy the culinary creations of Robin Leventhal, 43, (if only vicariously) as they watch her go up against 32 year-old Ashley Merriman of Branzino, along with chefs from Florida, Michigan, California, Pennsylvania, and, of course, New York. The culinary marathon will go down in Las Vegas.

So, which Seattle chef will you be rooting for?
