The Food Network Restaurant Hustle documentary could spark change.

While food might be the universal language, the Food Network Restaurant Hustle documentary finds a way to express the other side of the restaurant industry. Although diners often see that perfect plate of food carefully placed on a table, the effort and determination to get to that point is a huge labor of love. As the restaurant industry faces great peril, this Food Network documentary hopefully gives some insight into the real picture behind the plate.

According to the Food Network, the documentary features the following:

"In this documentary from Executive Producer Guy Fieri, four of America’s favorite chefs — Maneet Chauhan, Antonia Lofaso, Christian Petroni and Marcus Samuelsson — pick up the cameras and enlist the help of friends and family to document what happened to their restaurant empires as the outbreak of COVID-19 swept across the United States. As state and local governments closed restaurants from New York City to Los Angeles, Maneet, Antonia, Christian and Marcus each came up with different strategies to try to save their businesses and keep their employees working while also serving food to their local communities and frontline health workers."

Many people have seen Guy Fieri and his big personality on many shows, but this program is not Triple D. Although Fieri has been a strong supporter of the restaurant industry and has raised large sums of money for the cause, this documentary should give a taste of what a chef struggles to do daily. Although not a kitchen confidential, it needs to paint a picture to implore viewers to support that favorite local restaurant that is struggling to survive.

Although the chefs highlighted on this program are well known names to foodies, they draw people into the conversation. These stories might not be the same as other chefs and restaurants, but they can set an expectation. If people want that favorite restaurant to keep those doors open, it will take more than a wish and a prayer.

While many people will watch this show because is Guy Fieri attached to Food Network Restaurant Hustle, the future story is the one that needs to be told. The ripple effect of a shuttered restaurant is more than just a squelched dream for a chef. From the line cook to the farmer, that community behind the restaurant needs support.
