Best New Restaurant is mag’s first foray into broadcast

For the first time in its 58-year history, Condé Nast’s Bon Appétit is hitting the airwaves. This January, the magazine will partner with Bravo on a new competition series, Best New Restaurant, which pits 16 different restaurateurs against each other in hopes of winning a grand prize that includes $100,000 cash, a feature in Bon Appétit and a spot at the magazine’s annual Vegas Uncork’d food festival. Editor in chief Adam Rapoport and restaurant and drinks editor Andrew Knowlton will join the show’s host and judge Tom Colicchio as resident experts.
