Plot Overview

Fox Press Release: Celebrity chef Jack Bourdain, currently making pizzas at a chain restaurant, is offered an opportunity to become head chef of Nolita, a hip New York City restaurant. Pino, the owner of the establishment, has 300 reservations on the books and no food, crew or chef. He gives Jack the job and 48 hours to get it done. Jack raids other kitchens, bringing in an all-star team of chefs from his past. When a food critic Jack met during his wild days comes to Nolita, things have a horrible way of going wrong. Chaos ensues, but there is hope - the food critic gives Nolita a rave review
