This week on NBC‘s America’s Next Great Restaurant we watched as Stephenie Park failed to make the finale as her Mediterranean cuisine did not impress the judges. But in her post elimination interview, Stephenie defends her food and says she knew she was not the judges’ choice. Keep reading to hear what else Stephenie had to say!

America’s Next Great Restaurant fans said goodbye to Harvest Sol this week as Stephenie Park was eliminated from the competition just shy of the finale. Stephenie said in her post elimination interview “I feel that I put in a strong performance just before I was eliminated, but I also knew that I was not the person that the judges were looking for” and “I would love to see my vision of an affordable fast-casual restaurant focusing on healthy, whole foods become a reality.”

Since the show, however Stephenie is going in a million directions with her life as she tells NBC “A few months after the show, I left my job to figure out what direction I want my life to take. I spent a little over a month with Province (a restaurant in Chicago) learning about choosing and using local ingredients and ethically raised meats and seafood. After that, I sang two concerts with the New York City chorus Essential Voices USA. Most recently, I traveled to Panama so that I could learn Spanish and hike through the rainforest. Throughout those adventures, I’ve been working on a novel and writing songs, so it’s been a little bit of everything.”
