Top Chef Last Chance Kitchen Episode After Season 19 Restaurant Wars

As if Restaurant Wars wasn’t hard enough already, Bravo’s Excellent chef upped the ante for Season 19’s iconic elimination challenge. Each of the two teams had to come up with a restaurant concept to not only serve the judges at a chef’s table, as they did in the middle of the pandemic in season 18, but also a room full of guests.

Unfortunately, this double challenge turned out to be a bit too difficult for a chef, who Padma Lakshmi told to “please pack your knives and go” at the end of the April 21 episode. But fortunately, this chef gets another redemption chance in Last Chance Kitchen, which you can see above. In fact, they sort of have a chance to try their luck at Restaurant Wars, in a way.

It is because the challenge of this last part of Last chance kitchen is like a mini-Restaurant Wars, giving eliminated test chefs a chance to create a new restaurant concept – but it’s certainly nothing short of it, as you’ll see. Even host Tom Colicchio admits, “This challenge is tough.”

The chefs agree, using choice phrases like “it was so hard” and “pretty brutal” to describe the experience. However, their hard work pays off, wowing Tom and special guest judge Gail Simmons with their dishes.

But which restaurant concept will prevail and bring it closer to its reintegration into the competition? Check out the full episode of Last chance kitchenabove.
