Filming will be for the "stress test," where the show packs the restaurant full of customers to find out what the restaurants need the most help with for training. Anyone who wants to be on the show is encouraged to show up for the filming at 7 p.m. and sign a release acknowledging they will be on camera.
Guests from the first filming will be encouraged to return for filming at the grand reopening around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 12.
