Renowned chef and restaurateur Tom Colicchio is known to Bravo’s loyal viewers as a mentor/judge on Top Chef, and with the new series Best New Restaurant he takes his culinary knowledge on a different journey.

Sixteen restaurants from Austin, Miami, New York, and Los Angeles will be spotlighted, with the winner of “Best New Restaurant” receiving an editorial feature in Bon Appétit, a featured spot at the Vegas Uncork’d global food festival, and $100,000.

Maggie Nemser (CEO, BlackboardEats.com) and Jeffrey Zurofsky, Colicchio’s partner in ‘wichcraft, will also aid Colicchio in finding the “best new restaurant.”
