NEW YORK - August 26, 2010 - In a series first, Bravo's "Top Chef D.C." takes the finale abroad as the final chef'testants travel to Singapore and get narrowed down to three on Wednesday, September 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Singapore is a melting pot of all things culinary - with influences of Chinese, Indian, Malay and Eurasian cuisines - their culinary landscape is constantly evolving. The final chef'testants are put to the test, embarking on many challenges indigenous to the region, encompassing both fine dining elements and native street cuisine all culminating in a dramatic fight for the title of "Top Chef" where the winner will be named on Wednesday, September 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Home to many of the best restaurants in the world, Singapore also feeds many of the most sophisticated palettes straight out of their legendary hawker centers. Hawker centers are all over the city/state, and feed the majority of the population breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between - there are over 16,000 hawker stalls in Singapore. With a rich and colorful heritage, Singapore is quickly emerging as one of the most highly regarded destinations in Southeast Asia for innovative and exciting food. The Quickfire challenge focuses on street food - by incorporating proteins, fruits, and vegetables commonly found in Singaporean food, it tests the knowledge of the chefs' skills. The guest judge for the Quickfire is K.F. Seetoh, Singapore's resident "Street Food Guru." For the Elimination Challenge, Food & Wine Magazine's Dana Cowin travels to Singapore to host an event at the ultra posh Tanjong Beach Club on the resort island of Sentosa. The final Elimination challenge is to cook dinner for Singaporean and International Chefs and personalities at the Jim Thompson Restaurant in trendy Dempsey Hill.
