Robert Irvine has gathered eight aspiring restaurateurs for a bus road trip of a lifetime. Through a rigorous set of challenges, Robert will be looking at every aspect of their business acumen and testing all the skills needed to run their own restaurant. In the end, only one person will remain on the bus, ultimately dropped-off at their final stop: their very own restaurant. (Source: FOOD Network)
The Restaurant Express bus arrives at the final location: The M Resort in Las Vegas, where the winner will open their very own restaurant! The last two chefs standing will be given a budget of $5,000 and must create a restaurant fit for the resort. They must design their restaurant, create their menu and impress not only 100 diners, but also Robert and two M Resort executives. The chef with the best overall concept and execution will win Restaurant Express!
