America’s Next Great Restaurant

March 13, 2011

Sunday night television tends to be a let down.   Things changed last weekend when I was flipping through the channels and happened to come across another reality TV show.  This wasn’t just any show.  It had “foodie” all over it and I was a happy girl!  

Tune into NBC right now (if you’re in my timezone) and you might catch the 2nd episode of America’s Next Great Restaurant!  

The show in a nutshell:  Twenty-one people present their restaurant concepts to the panel of judges.   One lucky contestant will get the opportunity to bring their idea to life across three cities across the United States with restaurants in New York City, Minneapolis and Hollywood.   The restaurant concepts are all over the place so you’re bound to find someone or some idea that makes your mouth water.  

Which one am I rooting for?   “Saucy Balls” –  A concept focused on meatballs (which I do love, especially on this Paleo Diet), but the name might have something to do with it as well:)

UPDATE:  The judges said so long to the Sport’s Wrap concept last night.  The idea was a little too gimmicky and the wraps (taste wise) weren’t up to snuff.

    I don’t get this. How can someones resturant be in the top 10 out of thousands and the judges have a problem with their concepts, recipes and names of the top ten?
    Why then are they in the top ten? Somebody has a country resturant called “Hicks” and they say the food is too greasy and they don’t like the name? Then why are they in the top 10? They don’t want to finance these guys restuarants. They want to finance their own concepts, recipes and names and are going to let these guys run them. You can’t tell them they have to change their whole concepts if they want to win? If they change their concept it is no longer their idea. I don’t get it.
