24 Hour Restaurant Battle

Hosted by Scott Conant

Italiano Battle

That's Italian! This battle pits two teams of three against each other in a clash of Italian cuisine. Rossella and Angela Rago, along with "Nonna" Romana Sciddurlo are three generations of Italian women from Brooklyn, NY, who keep their cooking authentic with recipes passed down through their family. Best friends from Connecticut, Anthony Longbardi and Chris Gentile, together with Anthony's sister, Debra Jean, use their culinary educations to put a twist on the traditional Italian fare they grew up with. Will the patrons prefer the time-honored traditions of the Old Country, or will they gravitate toward the modern twist on familiar fare? Judges include: Karine Bakhoum, Gabriella Gershenson, and Marcus Samuelsson. (Episode: RT0104)
