DESCRIPTION: (from Esquire Network's press release, April 2015) Stakes for bragging rights have never been higher. Esquire Network's raucous after-hours cooking competition series KNIFE FIGHT gets shaken up in a new tournament that will crown one ultimate champion of season three, premiering Tuesday, May 26 at 10/9c. In each episode, two chefs go head-to-head, making at least two dishes in one hour from a combination of secret ingredients. 16 New York area chefs will compete to conquer mystery ingredients and each other, but only one will be left standing. Week after week, each bout is 'do or die' as chefs will either advance to the next round or be eliminated from competition. The chefs that move on will face harder ingredients and even tougher opponents as each week the battles whittle the competition down to two challengers who go head to head in a one-hour grand finale fight for glory. Ilan's newest outpost The Gorbals Brooklyn serves as the venue, and Judges Naomi Pomeroy and Kris Morningstar join him as they determine New York's "Beast of the East."
