I’m Hungry

6 Mar

A new show debuted tonight on NBC called America’s Next Great Restaurant, and I am HOOKED. Finally, a new food show! If you’ve been under a rock for the last few months and don’t know anything about it, it’s a search for the next best “quick & casual” restaurant concept (aka fast food). The panel of judges are Bobby Flay, Steve Ellis (dude who founded Chipotle), Curtis Stone (nice looking Aussie man) & Lorena Garcia, a lady Latina chef. Winner gets their restaurant opened in 3 cities – NYC, LA & Minneapolis (random).

Tonight started with a panel of 21 contestants, with concepts ranging from fancy grilled cheese sammys, fried chicken & waffles, healthy wraps for athletes, healthy Indian food, saucy balls, wings, angel & devil (sinful & not so sinful options of the same dish) and stir-fry, to name a few. Each contestant had to create a dish that would be served at their restaurant and pitch their idea to the panel of judges, and the judges decided if they would move into the final 10.

Early PattyMelt favorites: angel & devil & grilled cheeses! Can’t wait to see what they cook up next week (pun intended)! Tune in Sunday nights, 8/7c.

In other news, Charlie Sheen is on CNN right now and I can’t stop watching.
