Food Network seeks budding restaurateurs in DC!

We received this email from Alena Jemas, Casting Producer for 24 Hour Restaurant Battle Food Network/CBS News Productions, and wanted to pass along to our readers:

I am the casting producer for 24 Hour Restaurant Battle, Food Network’s new restaurant competition series from the producers of The Next Food Network Star.

We're currently casting the very first season and would like to inform you and your readers that we're holding an open casting call in Washington, DC on Monday, February 22, 2010.

The details of our events are as follows:

Date: Monday, February 22, 2010
Time: 10am – 3pm

Location: Zentan Restaurant/Donovan House Hotel
1155 14th Street NW, Washington, DC

We are looking for:

* Two to five person teams with pre-existing relationships (brother and sister, mother and son, husband and wife, etc.) who would love the chance to prove that they can run a restaurant.
* A dynamic front of house and back of house duo. One person on the team will run the front of the house and the other person on the team will be the chef and run the kitchen. All levels of experience (culinary school trained to home cook, little or no restaurant experience to a lifelong career in restaurants) will be considered.
* Lots of energy and charisma! We're seeking personalities that pop.

If you have any questions or need further information, please feel free to contact me or visit our website at

Thank you for your time!
