Hosted by Tyler Florence, Food Court Wars pits two teams of aspiring food entrepreneurs against one another as they battle to win their own food court restaurant, rent-free for a year. Each week it’s a different U.S. city mall. The mall wants to open a brand-new “local” eatery in the food court that offers a fresh region-specific menu. Stakes are high as teams must test their concept, market their brand, and run their outlet for a full day feeding hungry shoppers. The team whose restaurant makes the most profit wins their eatery space – a prize worth $100,000! The losing team must vacate the premises.

Premiering Sunday, February 23rd at 8pm – “House of Doggs vs. Matts’ Beignets”

Host Tyler Florence heads to Traverse City, Michigan, where husband and wife, Nick and Autumn, combine their love of music with their fondness for food when they opened their rock-and-roll hot dog restaurant. With only seasonal business and a cursed location, they hope to expand their brand so Nick can quit his construction work and focus solely on their hot dog business. Best friends Matt and Matt not only share the same name, but also share a passion for beignets which they hope to transform into a broader, successful culinary concept. These two teams will face-off to prove that they have what it takes to win over the hungry residents of Traverse City, Mich.

Please check out the March 23rd Episode which features two successful neighborhood

restaurants battling for their own food court spot in Lewisville, TX.

Premiering Sunday, March 23rd at 8pm ET/PT – “Full Circle Sliders vs. Jonathon’s Gravy Train”

Newlyweds Jennifer and Lara plan to turn their fun neighborhood gastropub “Full Circle Tavern” into a food court concept. Lara gave up her job to join self-taught chef Jennifer in the business, so they’ve got to make sure it’s a success. Jonathon and his wife Christine own and operate a small neighborhood restaurant called Jonathon’s Oakcliff. In the two years they have been open they have received high praise from the local “foodie” scene. It’s time for this husband and wife team to take their brand to the next level and expose more people to Jonathon’s amazing food. Which team will emerge victorious with a chance to win their own local mall food court spot in Lewisville, Texas.

Before we left NOLA, we stopped at this restaurant that was off the beaten path and I had the best grits of my life! My crappy phone photo above really doesn’t do it justice, but you can see the lovely pool of butter around the plate which made it so amazing! I found the recipe below on Southern Living and it reminded me of the  wonderful grits I had in NOLA. Hope you enjoy!!
