Feed The Beast focuses on an alcoholic sommelier, whose son witnessed the hit-and-run death of his mother and has been mute since. There’s also the sommelier’s BFF rock-star chef who turned down his last restaurant, which left him owing the mob half a million dollars, as Phillips described today, sitting alone onstage at TCA. The friends attempt to open a Greek restaurant.
Show creator Clyde Phillips says Feed the Beast is about the “underbelly of trying to open a restaurant in the last frontier of New York City, which is the Bronx.”
The show begins filming on February 1st.
