Bravo taping "Top Chef'" alum Jen Carroll for upcoming series

Bravo cameras have been following former "Top Chef" contestant and fan favorite Jennifer Carroll around town. Carroll, a Daily News "Sexy Single," was recently captured having a girls'-night dinner at Sbraga (Broad & Pine), which "Top Chef" winner Kevin Sbraga opened last year. We're told the Bravo crew is shooting a new series, "Life After Top Chef," that follows a handful of "Top Chef" contestants as they try to open restaurants, which Carroll, who spent several years at 10 Arts by Eric Ripert at the Ritz-Carlton, is now working on.

Bravo cameras have been following former "Top Chef" contestant and fan favorite Jennifer Carroll around town.

Carroll, a Daily News "Sexy Single," was recently captured having a girls'-night dinner at Sbraga (Broad & Pine), which "Top Chef" winner Kevin Sbraga opened last year.

We're told the Bravo crew is shooting a new series, "Life After Top Chef," that follows a handful of "Top Chef" contestants as they try to open restaurants, which Carroll, who spent several years at 10 Arts by Eric Ripert at the Ritz-Carlton, is now working on. She's scouting locations for a spot called Concrete Blonde, which she has described as a play on her hard-edged personality and blond hair and also a tribute to the alternative-rock band by the same name.

Carroll declined to comment about why a camera crew has been following her. Unfortunately, the crew was not rolling Wednesday night at Delilah's (100 Spring Garden), where she helped judge the Entertainer of the Year contest alongside judges including 97.5 The Fanatic host Tony Bruno and Philadelphia Bar & Restaurant (120 Market) co-owner Nick Moore. Winter took first place and $7,000 in the exotic-dancer contest, while India won $3,000 and Layla took home $2,000.
