The fine arts network Bravo has announced the officially official premiere date ofLife After Top Chef: October 3. As previously announced, the show features former cheftestapants Richard Blais in Atlanta, Jen Carroll in Philadelphia (and, as noted by Eater operatives, in Charleston), Spike Mendelsohn in D.C., and Fabio Viviani in Los Angeles. It follows the chefs as they "[open] their own restaurants, [expand] franchises and [establish] themselves as culinary leaders in the food world." Excellent.
So what has happened to these heroes since they were last on Bravo? The show follows Blais as he tries to balance family time with opening his new Atlanta restaurant, the Spence. Mendelsohn tries to expand his brand while "avoiding ruffling feathers with the Mendelsohn clan." Carroll works on opening her "dream restaurant" Concrete Blonde — which, spoiler alert, has been put on holdwhile she eyes New York City spaces. Apparently Viviani has his eyes on becoming the "male Martha Stewart." Here's a very exciting video preview and the press release:
