Clyde Common

Portland

In a building supposedly once a schoolhouse, this cavernous, hip eatery has a huge bar, several levels of seating

 
Takashi

Salt Lake City, UT

A vibrant place in SLC's downtown. There isn't much there, but this place is cool, moodily lit and has a great staff.

 
Katsu-Ya

Los Angeles, CA

Though purists swear by the location on Ventura, decidedly more "real" and more low-frills - that location and it's sleeker Hollywood and Vine location - the original creations that this place cranks out, using seasonally fresh ingredients...

 
Ippudo

New York, NY

Yes Ramen is a hot craze right now. Yes, it's fun to slurp noodles. Yes, delicious ramen can be found in many places - but exceptional Ramen is harder to find.

 
Street and Co.

Portland, Maine

This amazing eatery on Portland's cobblestone lined Wharf Street is a true jewel. Very much come as you are in terms of vibe, but the food demands attention.

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?
