The Festicle isn’t the only thing coming down the pipeline for Spike Mendelsohn. The Good Stuff Eatery and We, the Pizza toque will host a new television show on the FYI Network called Midnight Feast

Based out of New York’s Chelsea Market, the series will feature one-hour episodes in which chefs are allowed full access to the Union Market-esque food hall after hours. Contestants make ambitious meals out of ingredients found in the various shops, from Italian speciality stores to seafood markets. Winners leave with a cash prize equivalent to ten times the total price of their ingredients, while losers have to pay for every item they grabbed. So pack your knives and go, but don’t forget the tab. 

Spike fans can catch him playing host and head judge on the series premiere October 16 at 10 PM.
