NBC’s new show America’s Next Great Restaurant, which premiered March 6, encompasses all of my favorite things: food, competition and creativity. And you know it’s going to be delish because the show’s creators are the same ones behind the hit shows Top Chef and Project Runway.
America’s Next Great Restaurant is a competition for up-and-coming chefs to win a chance to open up a restaurant chain in three locations — Los Angeles, Minneapolis and New York City. Each chef proposes his or her own restaurant concept, and the most innovative of the bunch will ultimately win the contest through a series of challenges. We’ll be keeping an eye on the two Asian American contestants who have moved on to the top 10: Sudhir Kandula (The Tiffin Box) and Stephenie Park (Compleat).
