24-Hour Restaurant Battle Coming to Food Network in July

Food Network Wages a 24-Hour Restaurant Battle

If "Restaurant Wars" is always your favorite episode of Top Chef, then Food Network wants you to pick its battle next. Premiering July 21 at 10 p.m. EST, with a special sneak peek July 18, 24-Hour Restaurant Battle pits two teams of aspiring restaurateurs against each other in a race to open an eatery in just one day. Diners and judges will decide whose formula has the most potential, with the winners taking home the funds to fully realize their dream. Just watching the trailer is stressing me out, which is probably a sign of a good show. Here's a preview:

With sometime Top Chef judge Scott Conant hosting, and Top Chef Masters winner Marcus Samuelsson weighing in as a judge, 24-Hour Restaurant Battle seems like it's taking a stab at the Bravo show's success. Though we've been hearing more about the Food Network's new sister channel lately, I'm glad to see the flagship station serving up some new, creative fare too. Do you think you'll check it out?

Right right...he's just "particular". :rotfl: If I were a contestant on that show I wouldn't put raw onions on anything!

I will totally watch this. I love the Food Network, and even though Scott Conant is a little bit over the top with his hate of raw red onion on chopped (remember, bluesarahlou, he is "very particular" :P), I think he is a nice guy and I would like to see him do something else. I just hope that maybe the producers allow him to not be such an ass, that would be refreshing.

I kinda love Scott Conant....he can be a total dick on Chopped (with his hatred of raw onions), but he's also really funny on Best Thing I Ever Ate. I'll check it out.
