Sneak Peek: Tonight's Premiere of CNBC's RESTAURANT STARTUP
On "Restaurant Startup" restaurateur and TV personality Joe Bastianich and chef and restaurant operator, Tim Love, vie against each other to invest their own money in food concepts they believe will make them millions. Each week, two teams will make their case to our investors, Joe Bastianich and Tim Love, for a shot at launching a temporary version of their great concept for a restaurant or a specialty food shop. Then we'll open the doors and test the concept on the public. At the end of the process, our two investors will decide whether or not they will put their own money on the line to make someone's dreams come true. Check out some some sneak peek video below:
Small-plate concepts are taking Los Angeles by storm. Joe Bastianich, and Tim Love, who are always looking for their next investment opportunity, are excited to hear from two L.A. based businesses hoping to make their mark in this world. First up, Bling Bling Dumplings, run by a pair of best friends, is a catering and farmer's market staple in the city, but the pair is obviously green when it comes to business. The investors also hear from a Michelin-trained chef and his wife who want to transition their Mills & Co brand of high-quality charcuterie from selling at local farmers markets to a combined restaurant/retail space. Will either team realize their culinary dream?
"Restaurant Startup" is on a quest to discover, invest in and launch America's next generation of epicurean superstars. Airs Tuesdays at 10 PM ET/PT on CNBC.
