U.S. net Bravo Media will eat its way across the country in its forthcoming, out-of-studio culinary competition series Best New Restaurant, set to premiere in January.

The series – produced by the Gordon Ramsay-helmed prodco One Potato Two Potato – is based on the UK show Ramsay’s Best Restaurant (pictured), as previously announced.

The U.S. version will be hosted by Top Chef judge and restaurateur Tom Colicchio, and pit 16 American restaurants against one another to determine the strongest establishment. The series will largely shoot on-location, and Colicchio will judge the restaurants on their dishes as well as decor, hospitality and overall concept.

Restaurants competing in the series include Austin’s Barlata Tapas Bar, L.A.’s Doma Beverly Hills, Miami’s Buns & Buns and New York’s L’Apicio, among others.

The winning restaurant will receive an editorial feature in Bon Appétit magazine, as well as a featured place at the Vegas Uncork’d food festival next year.

Executive producers for One Potato Two Potato include Gordon Ramsay, Tom Colicchio, Elizabeth Cook, Nicola Moody, Patricia Llewellyn and Ben Adler.
