not planed. TV Show was canceled.
There's nothing more glamorous than running a restaurant – but there's also nothing more difficult. For restaurateurs trying to earn their piece of the pie, the New York food scene is a ruthless, cutthroat jungle where the stakes are high, the margins are razor thin, and success is hard to come by. In a new primetime docu-series, Consumed: The Real Restaurant Business, CNBC takes viewers behind–the-scenes of five very different restaurants in the ultra-competitive New York food scene, chronicling their every struggle and occasional triumph.The 8 one-hour episodes will follow five businesses at a crossroads, fighting for their piece of a multi-billion dollar industry: 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 NY food press with an expensive re-launch; and Seamore's, a bold, but risky new seafood restaurant launching this summer.
Trend-setting chain The Meatball Shop looks to expand its empire; Harlem hotspot Melba's searches for new ways to grow; family-run Ann & Tony's struggles to attract customers in a changing Little Italy.
The co-owners of The Meatball Shop and Ann & Tony's have to deal with some internal problems.
Ralph and Anthony receive a million- dollar proposal; Melba is hit with a violation; Michael and Daniel come to a crossroads.

Daniel races to fix his flagship location in time for the fifth anniversary party, while Michael begins a new chapter. Rohini prepares to re-launch her struggling New York location.
Michael makes two enormously risky decisions; Rohini pushes her staff to refresh Vermilion's menu; Daniel must find a way to cap his soaring labor costs.
Rohini finally re-launches Vermilion and faces her critics; Daniel deals with a potentially devastating crisis; Ralph and Anthony decide to honor their parents with a big event.
Ralph and Anthony pay tribute to their family and prepare to pass the torch; Michael puts his risky concept to the test; Daniel makes a decision that will change his and Michael's lives forever.
