Curtis Stone New Show Gets Great Reviews

Curtis Stone whose profile is in the stratosphere  in the US, has premiered his new show called America’s Next Great Restaurant to good reviews. (See previous post called the Year of Curtis Stone)

The Daily Telegraph reports the show is where:

[Curtis]Stone is set to team up with superstar chefs Bobby Flay, Lorena Garcia and Steve Ells on America’s Next Great Restaurant which puts aspiring restauraters through their paces in a series of culinary and business challenges – with the winner seeing their concept brought to life in a number of locations.

The show premiered to glowing reviews in the US on Friday night with one critic tipping the show to be a major broadcast smash.

“With a tone that is more positive than negative, America’s Next Great Restaurant is one show I expect will beat the odds,” glows the National Public Radio, while Variety commends the show for being “admirably low on trash-TV antics, lending it additional family-friendly appeal in the 8pm slot”.

Of course no news if we are going to get the show in Australia anytime soon.

Curtis Stone is on the new Top Chef Masters which will premiere on Bravo in April in the US. Considering the previous Top Chef Masters is currently showing on Arena on Monday nights, it may be some time before we get it on our screens. Hopefully we will get the Top Star All Stars soon also as glimpses that I have seen of it show that it rocks.

Yay for Curtis!

I’m very interested to see him on Top Chef Masters… I like him a lot but I have always thought of him as a TV, home-style chef as opposed to a restaurant chef so it will be great to see how he measures up with the best of the best. He was great on the Apprentice so I’m sure he will come across well again.

Oh oops, I just read your previous article and realised that he will be hosting, not competing. Good for him! It will be good to have a bona fide chef/host. I wonder if he will have a vote at the judge’s table, like Padma does.

The problem I have with Curtis Stone is that I can’t look away from the teeth. They’re mesmerising.
