David Chen recently purchased The Black Olive, an Italian restaurant in Lomita, CA that has been around for more than 20 years. But with bland food and an unwelcoming ambience, the restaurant is losing thousands of dollars per month. David is so paralyzed by fear of failure that he has neglected to make any changes, and is now suffering from terrible online reviews. Can chef/hosts Andrew Gruel and Anthony Dispensa help David rekindle the passion he once had for the Black Olive? Or will his first shot at owning a restaurant ultimately be his last?
