America's Next Great Restaurant and Chopped All-Stars Premiered

What Did You Think of Sunday's Food TV Lineup?

Last night saw the debut of two much-hyped-about food television shows: Bobby Flay's America's Next Great Restaurant on NBC and Chopped All-Stars on Food Network. I watched both and found them to be overall entertaining. At a time when the fast-food industry has been under scrutiny, it's interesting that mega chefs Flay and Curtis Stone are investing in a chain eatery.

Over on Chopped, it was fun to see the Next Food Network Star contestants again. I forgot how much I liked Lisa Garza, and despite the fact that she didn't complete the challenge, I was rooting for her to get past the first round. Did you watch either of the new shows? Share your thoughts below!

I think American's Next Great Restaurant is a fun twist on the food reality shows that have been showing for years. These guys are different and going to be under pressure they don't expect. There are a lot of healthy ideas too. http://foodiegossip.blogspot.com/2011/03/nbcs-americas-next-great-restaurant.html It's like Idol, but better because we'll get to eat it eventually!

I caught bits and pieces of Bobby Flay's show last night. I have to admit that my main motivation is selfish...one of the three restaurants will be opened in Minneapolis. I DO have a favorite already, though. The guy with the meatballs that would name his place "Saucy Balls." Because Minneapolis just needs a place called "Saucy Balls."
