Celebrated chef and restaurateur Marco Pierre White (UK's "Hell's Kitchen") serves up NBC's new original cooking competition series "The Chopping Block," in which the British Michelin star chef offers neophyte hopeful chefs/restaurateurs working in eight couples a chance to compete in America's greatest restaurant challenge. "The Chopping Block" will expose the unseen pitfalls and behind-the-scenes madness that goes into opening a restaurant –with the help of a grand prize of $250,000. The controversial and unpredictable White represents their best chance at obtaining their dreams, as he is one of the world's most notable chefs and restaurateurs and they will all be under his critical eye.

The heat is on when White ushers the couples - split into two teams of four couples each – to two empty restaurant spaces, side-by-side, in the middle of Manhattan. There, they are given less than a week to accomplish a multitude of tasks including: a design and makeover of each space, planning a menu and generating buzz-worthy publicity to ensure a crowd on opening night. Both establishments will open at the same time and will be competing for the same customers - against 26,000 other restaurants in the world's busiest (and hungriest) city.

In each episode, noted food critics will be assigned to observe the chaos that inevitably unfolds on opening night, and after the dust has settled, White will return with the reviews. The worst-performing team will have to plead their case - because one couple will be asked to remove their aprons as they are sent home.
