HOLY MACKEREL!!! Battle Chefs Week 3 Recap (Video)

By  |  0 Comments

The Black Pearl’s Dan Knerr faced off against Nemo Bolin from Cook & Brown Public House in Newport, RI’s greatest chef competition.

It’s hard to believe that we’re already 3 fights into Battle Chefs III at the Revolving Door Restaurant, meaning there’s one match left in the preliminary round and then we start the semi-finals.

Albert Bouchard is typically the house judge (a position we believe comes with the title to the building), but he was away and so had Midtown Oyster Bar general manager Charlie Holder take his place. He was joined by Justin Bruhl, the Revolving Door’s current guest chef (check out his menu) and by randomly selected audience member Jackie Henderson, who’s quite the local celebrity in her own right.

The 360° Video

We brought out a new toy for this event and shot the competition with a 360° camera in time-lapse mode. So play it and spin it around. Just realize that Jason Kindness isn’t that fast a bartender in real life.

Battle Chefs is taking Thanksgiving week off and will return for its last preliminary round December 1, featuring Brian Ruffner of Jo’s American Bistro vs. Kyle Stamps of The Newport Restaurant Group. If there are any tickets left, you can sign up for them here.

Then things really fire up in the semi-finals!
