New Chefs on the Block is an intimate, multi-year portrait of two chefs and their staffs in Washington, DC who struggle to open and maintain their first restaurants. The film begins with each restaurant under construction and follows them through their first year of business.
Against all odds, one becomes the most famous new restaurant in America, winning Bon Appetit magazine's Best New Restaurant in America award. The other is forced to redefine success when his wife quits her high-paying job to work at the restaurant full-time.
Starring Aaron Silverman of Rose's Luxury and Frank Linn of Frankly...Pizza! Featuring legendary chefs and restaurateurs Michel Richard, Danny Meyer, Mike Isabella, Emily Sprissler and Washington Post food writer Tim Carman.
