Ep 7: Restaurant Wars

Season 12 | AIRED: Dec 3 10/9c

The chefs are split into two teams and given one day to open their own pop-up restaurants in this iconic Top Chef challenge. They must handle everything from creating menus to restaurant décor to training the wait staff in order to serve 100 diners – including Top Chef alums Kristen Kish and Stephanie Cmar as well as acclaimed restaurateur and guest judge Barbara Lynch. Egos and dishes collide in the kitchen when the chefs scramble to work together but when an ingredient goes missing and a dish is altered without the chef's approval, will it make or break the restaurants?
