This week on NBC‘s America’s Next Great Restaurant we said goodbye to Alex Terranova and his taco bar concept. After the show, Lorena Garcia dished on Alex and some of the other issues on this week’s episode!
America’s Next Great Restaurant investor Lorena Garcia blogged after the episode about Alex’s demise as she said “After much deliberation, we decided that one thing we could not invest in was bad food and Alex’s inability to improve it.” Lorena was also impressed with some of the contestants this week as she adds “Stephanie was finally able to give us what we had been asking for, a flavor profile for her health food concept. Going to law school, you learn how to think logically. Mediterranean cuisine is a logical flavor profile for a calorie-counting concept because the ingredients and cooking methods allow you to create many healthy options. She gave a perfect example of being able to take our advice and improve her concept.”
Lorena who was looking for the contestants progression this week had hoped they would take the investor’s advice as Stephanie did but she was disappointed with some others. Lorena also posted “Eric came into this competition with a very well thought-out plan, even providing his own sketches to the designers. The downside is that he’s so attached to his original idea that he didn’t allow his concept to evolve and improve according to our recommendations. Let me assure you, I’m a huge fan of grilled cheese, so I loved this concept – but he is the only person standing in his way.”
