DESCRIPTION: (from Esquire Network's press release, September 2013) KNIFE FIGHT, a gritty new cooking competition show hosted by Top Chef Season 2 winner Ilan Hall, features underground, after-hours cooking bouts between Los Angeles's most exciting chefs. Two half hour episodes of KNIFE FIGHT premiere back to back on Esquire Network Tuesdays at 9 and 9:30p e/p beginning Tuesday, September 24. Executive produced by Drew Barrymore, Flower Films and Authentic Entertainment, KNIFE FIGHT is not a made-for-TV competition. Hall's friends have gathered for years after hours at his downtown LA restaurant, The Gorbals -- eating, drinking, hanging out and competing against each other to see who could cook the tastiest dishes out of whatever was left over in his pantry.
