San Francisco, CA

Chef Chris Cosentino pulls off a dining miracle here. This place is at once a classic Italian restaurant, while also pushing the boundaries of what an Italian restaurant can be.

Marquee Grill

Dallas, TX

Executive Chef Tre Wilcox, a former Top Chef contestant, puts out some incredibly delicious dishes. Most notably shrimp and grits, duck, and perhaps the best steak I've ever eaten.

Black Trumpet

Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Located in what was at one point the tallest building in the city, Black Trumpet is in an amazingly warm and homey space, and has some of the best food you’ll ever have is served.

El Siboney

Key West, FL

This ultra low-key, always packed restaurant can be found by the amazing smell of garlic and roasted meats emanating from within.

Superior Pho

Cleveland, OH

Located inside a rather decrepit shopping plaza off of Superior, this place is truly a hidden gem.

Food Fighters

The table is set for the ultimate culinary clash in this one part cooking competition, one part game show. Host Adam Richman ("Man v. Food") will give homegrown amateur cooks the chance to test their skills against professional chefs. Every down-home cook has that one signature dish or secret family recipe that always gains favor with friends and family. Now, imagine going head-to-head in the kitchen against five professional chefs, who try to cook your specialty dish even better than you in the hopes of winning over a dinner party made up of the American public. With each savored victory, the cash prize gets bigger and bigger as the home cooks rise to every challenge and outcook the professional chefs. Think you've got what it takes to serve up the competition?
