Knife Fight, bro network Esquire TV's underground culinary competition show hosted by Top Chef season 2 winner Ilan Hall at his Los Angeles restaurant The Gorbals, returns for a second season beginning April 15 and three notable New Orleans chefs are set to battle.
Tory McPhail of the legendary Commander's Palace will go head-to-head with Sue Zemanick of Gautreau's and Ivy in one episode, while Justin Devillier from La Petite Grocery will face off with a Los Angeles chef in another episode.
Unlike shows like Chopped where chefs duke it out for large sums of cash, as Hall explains, "the only prize is a shitty knife" — plus, you know, the respect of peers and major bragging rights.
