An unscripted series that gives aspiring restaurateurs a chance to open their dream eateries.
In this battle of the besties, two completely opposite teams compete for their dream restaurant while their personalities and opposing lifestyles bring extra heat to the kitchen. Dana Chaney, brand development director for a restaurant group, and Nikki Heaps-Martin, a personal chef and catering manager, bring their West Hollywood, Calif. sparkle to the kitchen as they move past their differences and work as friends to create their globally-inspired seafood restaurant, The Famished Lamb. From Dallas, Texas, best friends Marcus Thompson, a restaurant manager, and Fred Messick, an executive sous chef, are perceived as rough-around-the-edges but get serious with their edgy healthy comfort food restaurant, The Citizen.
The kitchens are blazing as firefighters work to open restaurants with the people closest to them. College fraternity brothers John Sierp II, firefighter and owner of a catering company in Brooklyn, N.Y., and Jeffrey Waters, assistant general manager at an Atlanta restaurant, live far apart but their love of food and the restaurant industry has kept them bonded as they create their seafood and steakhouse restaurant called Seven-20. Twin brothers from Santa Rosa, Calif., Michael Graves, sales manager for a local trucking company, and Kris Graves, firefighter, use each other's strengths to help them open Enigma, serving comfort food classics with a touch of class.
