Overview
Jack Bourdain is a talented chef whose party lifestyle has effectively ended his career: too much wine, women and song has made Jack a has-been. But when he's given a second chance and just 48 hours to open an upscale restaurant, Jack assembles a sexy, hilariously dysfunctional staff and things really start cooking, both in the kitchen and the bedroom!

From the executive producer of Sex and the City comes this fresh comedy that is "slick, sophisticated and worth making a reservation for" (TV Guide)...Bon appetit!
