Chicago chef Graham Elliot, a fixture on Fox’s “Masterchef” until this year, has changed tables and will become part of the judging team on Bravo’s “Top Chef,” the cable channel announced over the weekend.

Elliot will dine alongside Tom Colicchio, Gail Simmons, Richard Blais and host Padma Lakshmi on the cooking competition’s 14th season, now shooting in Charleston, South Carolina.

The operator of Graham Elliot Bistro in Chicago served as a judge on “Masterchef” since its inception in 2010 but has not appeared on the current season. He also judged on spinoff “Masterchef Junior” and competed on the first two seasons of Bravo’s “Top Chef Masters.”

In Chicago, Elliot serves as the culinary director of the Lollapalooza festival.
