Here’s a Clip From ‘Consumed,’ the Reality Show about ‘the Ultra-Competitive New York Food Scene’

‘Consumed’ will air on Wednesday, May 13, at 10 p.m. 

On Wednesday, May 13, CNBC will premiere Consumed: The Real Restaurant Business, taking viewers “behind the scenes of five very different restaurants in the ultra-competitive New York food scene, chronicling their every struggle and occasional triumph.”

Those “five very different restaurants” featured in eight hour-long episodes, as described by CNBC, will be the “famed NYC hotspot and budding empire The Meatball Shop; Melba’s, a Harlem comfort food restaurant and neighborhood joint with national ambitions; Ann & Tony’s, a multi-generational restaurant in the Bronx that’s struggling to fill seats — and preserve its family legacy; Vermilion, an upscale restaurant hoping to win over the critical New York food press with an expensive re-launch; and Seamore’s, a bold but risky new seafood restaurant launching this summer.”

If you’re a fan of campy reality television, the dramatic sound cues and bleeped swearing will feel just right; if this isn’t your cup of tea, stick to the more gentle-hearted MasterChef Junior.

Consumed premieres at 10 p.m. on Wednesday, May 13. Watch a sneak peek of the series below:
