Atlanta Chef Ronald Hsu Discusses Netflix Show 'The Final Table,' New Restaurant

Dec 14, 2018

Atlanta-based chef Ronald Hsu stars on Netflix's reality competition cooking program, "The Final Table." It gathers 24 chefs from all over the world to compete in teams of two. Hsu partnered with Shin Takagi, owner and head chef of Zeniya in Japan, who also served as Hsu's mentor before the show.

Hsu joined "On Second Thought" to discuss his culinary inspirations and the world of reality TV cooking.

Hsu also shared his experiences as a young chef at Le Bernardin in New York City and talked about planning his own restaurant opening in Atlanta, Lazy Betty, in early 2019.

"I really feel like an underrepresented part of Atlanta's culinary scene is how global it is," Hsu said, pointing to Buford Highway and Duluth. "This [Netflix show] is a way for me to showcase a different side of Atlanta cuisine."
