The 16 chefs are given 40 minutes to execute their first individual challenge – the Bar Menu Challenge. Then, the chefs prep for the season's first dinner service, as they adapt to an all-new menu. For the first time ever, the restaurant will host Chef Tables on opening night with special VIP guests – singer Jordin Sparks, actor Joe Montegna, actor French Stewart, R&B singer Keith Sweat and singer Kirstin Maldonado from Pentatonix. One team struggles to bounce back after a rocky start, while the other team hits its stride and finishes strong. And after a disappointing dinner service, Chef Ramsay makes a shocking decision during elimination.
