Bravo’s ‘Best New Restaurant’ Gets Premiere, Sets Competitors

Forget bloggers’ end-of-year top 10 roundups and magazines’ editorial lists, Bravo wants to take foodies behind the scenes of how the sausage is made, so to speak, when determining what will become America’s “Best New Restaurant.”

The series, hosted by “Top Chef” judge Tom Colicchio and produced by restaurateur and TV personality Gordon Ramsay’s production company One Potato Two Potato, is modeled after the U.K. program “Ramsay’s Best Restaurant.” It premieres in January and follows 16 restaurant staffs through a series of challenges that will judge their space’s decor, hospitality, overall concept and, of course, food. Similar to “Top Chef,” which partners with Food & Wine magazine, the crowning restaurant will receive an editorial feature in Bon Appetit and a featured spot at 2015’s Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appetit food festival.
