Sixteen Restaurants Compete From Austin, Los Angeles, Miami and New York

Bravo Media today announced the 16 restaurants competing on its new culinary competition series “Best New Restaurant,” premiering in January 2015. Hosted by acclaimed chef and restaurateur Tom Colicchio and produced by restaurateur and TV personality Gordon Ramsay’s production company One Potato Two Potato, the series takes a look at the food world from a fresh direction: the restaurant. The majority of the series will be shot on location at the restaurants themselves to highlight each establishment’s unique point of view.

Colicchio, along with a team of experts, pits 16 of the nation’s hottest new restaurants against each other in a series of challenges aimed at determining which provides the best top-to-bottom experience. The restaurants will not only be judged on the dishes that are served, but also everything from decor to hospitality to overall concept. Colicchio will travel across the nation in search of one restaurant that deserves to be crowned “Best New Restaurant” and win an editorial feature in Bon Appetit as well as a featured spot at America’s No. 1 global food festival, Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appetit 2015.
