The Opener

Check out the preview here.


Iron Chef competitor and star of Restaurant Makeover, David Adjey’s been in the restaurant business his whole life. It’s taken him from working at a neighborhood greasy spoon to running a top New York City hotel. Along the way, he’s become the Keith Richards of the Biz. The restaurant world’s rock star - untamed and very, very smart. He’s now North America’s most sought-after consultant for hire.

In this real life one-hour documentary series, Chef David Adjey takes us into his world. In each episode, our hero helps newbie restaurateurs open their dream restaurant – often with their life’s savings on the line. Sounds easy. But it ain’t.
