“Top Chef” returns tonight after taking the week off for the Thanksgiving holiday with one of its biggest weapons. Tonight is the annual “Restaurant Wars” part of the competition. The much loved challenge involves the chefs splitting into two teams and then creating an entire restaurant completely from scratch. From the menus to the decor, everything must be pulled out of thin air. This challenge always creates great TV because of the high level of stress it places on the chefs. Some of the best moments are when the chefs are asked to step out of their element and do things like work the front of the house.
The synopsis of tonight’s episode from Bravo doesn’t give much away, but gives us a heads up about the special guest judge for the elimination challenge.
It’s baaack — the beloved “Restaurant Wars” challenge. The cheftestants face this classic challenge head-on — creating pop-up restaurants to impress the renowned judges panel, which includes chef and restaurateur David Chang.
People tun into “Restaurant Wars” for the crashes, just like NASCAR. It’s cool to watch chefs cook and everything, but we’d prefer them yelling at each other about the temperature of their pork. Bravo knows what sort of things we want out of this challenge, and the preview they posted online is wall to wall disaster. Sara is working the front of the house, and things just aren’t going her way.
Be there tonight to find out who will go home, and who will survive this year’s “Top Chef: Restaurant Wars”.
