What could possibly inspire such a list of must-know restaurant slang? If you know, you know. If you don’t though, we’re talking about the popular TV show “The Bear.” “The Bear” follows a 30-something-year-old chef named Carmen Berzatto (or Carmy) who has returned home to Chicago after traveling around to work at some of the world’s best restaurants. His career is sidetracked after the heartbreaking loss of his older brother who left behind a rundown mess of a restaurant.
"The Bear" immerses viewers in the fast-paced, unforgiving, cortisol-charged world of the restaurant industry — and the insider restaurant slang used on the show is just as fast-paced. Carmy recruits and works with family and coworkers to attempt to completely revamp his brother’s restaurant. It’s a beautiful heart-wrenching emotional rollercoaster of a show, and you’ll likely find yourself compelled to try to become the best chef version of yourself.
Regardless of whether you want to go full pro chef mode at home or just have a quick brush-up on your essential restaurant slang (which also comes in handy when watching the Food Network), we've got you covered.
