Midnight Feast: FYI's New Culinary Competition Show

As the name suggests, FYI network's newest show revolves around food prepared and consumed after dark. Set inside New York City's Chelsea Market — where nearly two dozen food vendors sell everything from freshly shucked oysters to hot-out-of-the-oven bread — Midnight Feast is described as "a late-night culinary showdown between some of the hottest chefs in the country." Chef Spike Mendelsohn (Good Stuff Eatery, Béarnaise, The Sheppard, Washington, D.C.), chef and restaurateur John DeLucie (The Lion, The Waverly Inn, New York City), and Eater's own Editorial Producer Kat Odell serve as hosts and judges.

In the six-episode series, professional chefs are given complete access to Chelsea Market and all of the food it has to offer. They are then tasked with creating a dish that fits into the evening's theme — from "the ultimate feast they would want to consume on their last night on earth to... a dish they think will guarantee a 'successful' evening of romance to... inventive meals that are meant to be eaten without silverware." At the end of the night, the winner walks away with a cash prize while the losers have to pay their own tabs. Midnight Feast airs October 16.
