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.

    Promotional is part of show biz,,How about more of these pro chefs showing us recipes and techniques ,,otherwise there may be no show …??

    If you have Xfinity, the first episode is available to watch now on On-Demand. The actual airdate is listed as 11/3.

    It looks like a typical competition show with the typical mix of home and restaurant cooks with questionable skills. It also has the requisite idiot who thinks he's the best thing since sliced bread and that they should just give him the restaurant prize now. All in all, another yawner.

    Bring back Dinner: Impossible.

    Good managers are those that can effectively place tables and chairs within the dining area of a restaurant. They should be able to coordinate napkin, table and chair colors with the theme of the restaurant and much more. When it comes to feeding guests in large numbers, a manager must know how to go about accommodating such groups.

    Great. a couple of single moms, a 300 pound "Chopped" loser retread, and a few other "contestants" chosen for the drama.

    hosted by Food Networks "Fraud of Frauds".

    On a bus of all things.

  7. Chris says:

    I wanted to give this show a chance, because I enjoy FN's recipes and shows. But, I'm done. The editors decide what content from each contestant's pitch to show us viewers, and thus shape the outcome. I was highly displeased with who was eliminated first, because it shows what the editors don't want. Therefore, I will never watch another FN show again. They are gone from my favorites list as well.

  8. Barbara says:

    my only thought is this why was everyone showed as they got back on the bus after they had been chosen to stay, except the cook who name was John, everyone was shown but him, little bit of discrimination there if you ask me, and he is one of our military men, they need to watch those things, if you are going to film one film all…Hope the show does good, we will see.

  9. There it is says:

    Hubby and I enjoyed the first episode. We will keep watching…great concept.

    Another great show in the making so far with RestaurantExpress. The first episode was very entertaining. Thank you Robert Irvine and the staff who make it all possible. Looking forward to the next set of challenges for this group of contestants.
