All Aboard Robert Irvine’s Restaurant Express

by in Shows, September 26th, 2013

Robert Irvine's Restaurant ExpressRobert Irvine may be known for rescuing America’s most dire eateries from the brink of failure on Restaurant: Impossible, but this fall he’s on a new mission: to find the most promising budding entrepreneur among a crop of restaurant hopefuls.

On his all-new series, Restaurant Express, Robert will challenge nine finalists to survive a culinary road trip across the West by proving not only their fearless culinary chops, but their business-savvy mindset, as well, if they want to keep their seat on the Restaurant Express bus. Week after week, it’s up to the contestants to demonstrate their staying power and impress Robert — a notoriously no-nonsense chef and experienced entrepreneur — by excelling in the host’s demanding challenges, both in the kitchen and out.

At the end of the journey, only one contestant will still be on the bus, and that person will have earned the title of executive chef and a leadership position on the team at the flagship restaurant The M Resort, Spa and Casino in Las Vegas.

What kinds of obstacles will the finalists face? Oppressive desert heat to be sure, plus early-round eliminations, limited budgets and discerning taste-testing critics, which means that, for these contestants, there’s no easy way to secure a bunk on the bus.

Tune in to the premiere of Restaurant Express on Sunday, Nov. 3 at 9pm/8c.

      Dont worry, Restaurant Impossible is still filming and the new season starts October 23rd. It is back to Wednesday Nights.

      • MoHub says:

        He currently has his own Restaurant: Impossible situation to deal with as he has had to close one of his places to repair water damage and remediate a resulting mold issues. It is to be hoped that he will have more than 2 days and $10K to fix the issues.

        • Darkaddict18 says:

          How Ironic.. But he at least closed it and seems to not to be waiting for years to fix the issues. Water Damage is not necessarily always one fault unless you waited to fix the leak too late.

    Beautiful I am a big fan of anything Chef Robert Irvine comes up with

  10. Shane says:

    Do any of these chefs actually cook anymore? I actually miss Dinner Impossible way more than any of his other shows.

    • Guest says:
