Chef Anne Burrell’s new Food Network show Vegas Chef Prizefight.
Las Vegas is used to hosting prizefights—but this time, the knives really did come out. In the new Food Network series Vegas Chef Prizefight, eight chefs battled to become head chef at Bugsy & Meyer’s Steakhouse at Flamingo Las Vegas. The champion of chow is Lamar Moore, veteran of several top Chicago restaurants.
Hosted by Anne Burrell, the seven-episode series challenged chefs to create dishes and prove they have the talent, leadership and determination to run the high-profile restaurant. Moore and his competitors showed their skills in restaurants including BLT Steak, El Burro Borracho, GIADA, MR CHOW and Restaurant Guy Savoy.
“We brought in a group of chefs who were participating in this interview process, and the last chef left standing now gets to be the head chef of the brand-new Bugsy & Meyer’s Steakhouse in the Flamingo,” says Burrell. “It’s very exciting!”
