Additionally, the Emmy Award-winning, groundbreaking digital video series “Top Chef: Last Chance Kitchen” returns Wednesday, December 10 at 11pm ET/PT on BravoTV.com with an epic two-part season premiere. The first six eliminated chefs return to the kitchen to face off in a battle royale with only one chef advancing. In each of the subsequent weeks, the eliminated cheftestant will go head to head in a pressure-filled contest competing for redemption and the ultimate prize: a spot in the “Top Chef” finale. Tom Colicchio hosts the series, which is sponsored by Hidden Valley® Food and The Glad® Products Company.

After next week’s hiatus, “Top Chef” returns on Wednesday, December 3 at 10pm ET/PT with the highly anticipated Restaurant Wars episode. The chefs are split into two teams and given one day to open their own pop-up restaurants in this iconic “Top Chef” challenge. They must handle everything from creating menus and restaurant décor to training the wait staff in order to serve 100 diners — including “Top Chef” alums Kristen Kish and Stephanie Cmar, as well as acclaimed restaurateur and guest judge Barbara Lynch. Egos and dishes collide in the kitchen when the chefs scramble to work together. But when an ingredient goes missing and a dish is altered without the chef’s approval, will it make or break the restaurant?
