Two teams of four couples have to open two restaurants in New York in less than one day.
First they have to pick up the ingredients, that they are using in their service, within fifteen minutes from two trucks.
Lisa's veal meal makes her the head chef of the red team. Than wins the title in the black team with his Roasted Chicken Provençal.
In the dinner service black team struggles to serve their customers. The red team struggles too, as they run out of filet mignon, just when the unknown food critic requests it. The food critic Corby Kummer names the red team as winner. Khoa from the black team can not take the stress in the kitchen and tells Marco that he and his cousin want to leave. Marco respects his decision and Khoa and Denise are the first eliminated couple.
