My Million Pound Menu 2

Next-gen restaurateurs get the chance to open their own pop-up eateries to impress the paying public - and a panel of discerning U.K. investors.

In each episode the winning idea has two days in a brand new 50-seater restaurant, in the heart of Manchester's bustling bar and restaurant district, to prove that their food, menus, pricing, service, team-management and business plans are worth the big money investment they are asking for.

On the first night they open for a half-price soft launch to the public and the investors, before being grilled in detail on their numbers and business plans the following morning.

Finally, they open for a full-priced lunch service, during which the investors must consider whether to invest or not.

As the investors are in competition with each other, Fred sets them a deadline by which time they have to return to the restaurant if they intend to invest.

With final service over, the operators face an anxious wait with Fred to see if anyone returns.

All they need is for one investor to walk through the doors and make them an offer, and their business fortune.
