Restaurant Wars Trivia! - Part 2


The only Restaurant Wars individual winners who went on to win their seasons are Stephanie Izard and Michael Voltaggio, who, of course, aren’t appearing on All-Stars because they've already won. But here’s some food for thought, er, trivia:

1. Which of these cheftestants made it to Restaurant Wars in their respective seasons?

2. Which contestants who took on front of house duties were named winners of Restaurant Wars in their respective seasons?

3. How many times has a tartare or crudo appeared on a Restaurant Wars menu? As I said in my first Restaurant Week trivia post, this is a friendly contest, so you can just mention chef/team/dish descriptions on this one.

4. Match the Restaurant Wars dessert to the season/team/chef:

a. Baklava Cigars with Fig and Minted Frozen Yogurts

c. Butterscotch Miso Scallops
