Meet the Judges

Food Network's new reality-competition series will feature a new panel of rotating judges each week.

About the Show

Hosted by renowned chef Scott Conant (chef and owner of Scarpetta), each episode of 24 Hour Restaurant Battle features dueling teams of aspiring restaurateurs who have 24 hours to conceive, plan and open their own restaurants for one night. On each team, one person handles front-of-house issues like decor, seating and service while the other manages back-of-house matters like menu planning, shopping and, of course, cooking. When the doors open, each restaurant serves a discerning group of diners along with Scott and a rotating panel of judges representing three areas of expertise: restaurant marketer, restaurant reviewer and restaurant investor. Based on the restaurant’s concept, execution and viability, the judges choose a winning team who receive $10,000 seed money toward realizing their dream.
