Ever wonder how long it takes to get a restaurant started? How about 24 hours?! At least that’s all Food Network’s new show ’24 Hour Restaurant Battle’ thinks it takes!
Hosted by Scott Conant, who you may recognize from ‘Chopped,’ ’24 Hour Restaurant Battle’ is pretty self-explanatory: Each one-hour episode features dueling teams who must conceive, plan, and open their own restaurants in 24 hours. On each team, one person handles front-of-house issues like décor, seating, and service while the other manages back-of-house matters like menu planning, shopping, and cooking. When the doors open, each restaurant serves a group of diners along with Scott and a rotating panel of judges. Based on the restaurant’s concept, execution, and viability, the judges choose a winning team who receive $10,000.
I am seriously hoping they select chefs who can’t stand one another to be on the same team. I wanna see Paula Deen cut someone.
