Recap Image

Dave and Kevin are the Hell's Kitchen Final Two! But there is still one more dinner service which will determine who will become the Head Chef at Araxi Restaurant and Bar in Whistler, British Columbia. For their final dinner service, Hell's Kitchen will be divided in two and they will each design their own menus and run their own kitchens. The chef who impresses the customers and Chef Ramsay the most will walk away the winner. This will be the most important dinner service of their careers.

BUT, the night is not over. Dave and Kevin are whisked away to a hotel in downtown Los Angeles where, to their surprise, there is a huge crowd cheering for them. Chef Ramsay informs the finalists that for their final HK Challenge, they need to make a dish worthy of Araxi and that award-winning chefs and critics will judge their dishes. Dave's venison creation goes head to head with Kevin's lobster dish, and the votes of the guest judges make Dave the winner, much to Kevin's dismay. Meanwhile, back at HK, a divider is going up and the stage is being set for the final dinner service showdown.

Early the next morning, the chefs wake up to plan their menus. Kevin has complex ideas he is hoping will prove to Chef Ramsay that he is creative and has a strong vision. Dave, on the other hand, is planning a very simple menu focusing on dishes inspired by Whistler. Whether his menu is too simple or not, only time will tell...

In the kitchens, Chef Ramsay informs Kevin and Dave that their deliveries have arrived. When they open the delivery truck, they find 6 of their former competitors who have returned to cook in the final dinner service. As a reward for winning the challenge, Dave gets the first draft pick and chooses Ariel, Robert and Suzanne for his team. Kevin selects Van, Amanda and Sabrina.
