Eight couples will be split into two teams, each team gets their own restaurant - next door to their competitors somewhere in Manhattan.. They will be responsible from taking the "bones" of the building through development, design and production to the finished product. One couple from the worst-performing eatery will be sent home each week. This lends the show a "novel twist," according to NBC reality chief Craig Plestis, "That's where you're going to see all the drama."
Yes, opening a restaurant can be extremely stressfull on a relationship, but is this a cooking show or a relationship show? I guess time will tell. One thing to keep in mind, it was all filmed last summer. The premiere episode is on March 11, 7pm (Central).
