Below are the descriptions of Restaurant Divided and 24-Hour Restaurant Battle for reference. The first is of Restaurant Divided:
"A family is torn apart by their failing restaurant — and their conflicting views about how to save it. Enter Rocco DiSpirito, who will try to save the restaurant by dividing the entire restaurant space in half and putting two concepts to the test. With his guidance, the families will open both restaurants for one night and compete, side-by-side, serving real customers. The concept that does best overall in profitability and customer reviews will be the one that unites the restaurant again, with all family members agreeing to work together on this brand new vision."
Here is the description of 24 Hour Restaurant Battle:
"Each episode, two teams of aspiring restaurateurs square off in an extremely intense competition to prove they have what it takes to open their own restaurant. The teams have just 24 Hours to conquer a concept, décor, and of course the food to turn a blank space into the restaurant of their dreams. Once the doors are open, actual diners will be served and a panel of restaurant experts will judge to see which team showed the most potential for running a successful restaurant. The winner will walk away with seed money to help them actualize their dream."
The episode tonight is at Mia Famiglia in Long Island City, NY, and judging by the reviews of the place, it is definitely not a 'failing' restaurant. Every review site is filled with 5-star reviews, and on Tripadvisor, it is ranked #4 out of 206 restaurants in Long Island City.
The description of tonight's episode:
"Chef/Restaurateur Rocco DiSpirito steps in to help feuding siblings Larry and Laura resolve their conflicting ideas about how to save their struggling family restaurant, Mia Famiglia, opened in honor of their late father. Laura believes changing to a sports bar concept will bring in the customers, while Larry is certain that a steakhouse will save them. In order to reveal the future of the restaurant, Rocco divides the restaurant to open both concepts for one night. Based on his assessment of customer reactions and the financial viability of each concept, Rocco chooses only one restaurant to move forward, bringing this family together and giving them hope for the future."
If you are interested in knowing what concept won, their Twitter profile reveals it, so scroll down as it is a spoiler for some.
Their Twitter profile says Mia Famiglia is a "Steakhouse with Italian influence," so expect the steakhouse concept to win.
