Top Chef Season 16 episode 5 preview: Restaurant Wars mayhem


Top Chef Season 16 episode 5 is part two of Restaurant Wars. With three restaurants competing, which one will be crowned the best restaurant?

Top Chef Season 16 episode 5 is bringing the heat to the kitchen. Restaurant Wars came early in the season and is even bigger this year. After the build-up in last week’s episode, this week’s episode will see the chefs in service. What disasters will be happen in this Top Chef fan favorite?

According to Bravo, this week’s episode, “Restaurant Wars part 2” states:

"The Restaurant Wars causes drama and mayhem; Tom announces a double elimination piling on even more pressure; chef Karen Akunowicz and Nina Compton join the restaurant crawl along with Nilou Motamed and judge Caroline Styne."

With a double elimination looming, the tension is at its peak. Looking back at last week’s episode, front of house looks to be an area where the restaurants will suffer. In two restaurants, the wait staff wasn’t trained. Based on clips, it looks like many diners might be waiting for their tables.

While front of the house can be tricky, the chefs need to be on point with their dishes. Each team took different approaches to their menus. Will prep intensive dishes fare better than dishes cooked on the fly? Sometimes the best intentions don’t always come to fruition.

Thinking about previous Restaurant Wars, the menu and the front of the house aren’t the key to winning. The team that puts egos asides and works best together as a team usually finds success.
Looking back on part 1, all the teams seem to have at least a little tension. Can chefs find the focus and work together?
