Bravo’s “Top Chef" reality cooking competition is looking for new faces for its upcoming 16th season.

The show will be having a casting call from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 10 at the Stubborn Seed, 101 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. The series is traveling around the country and visiting restaurants of alumni and friends of “Top Chef’’.
