Owners of The Striker in Portsmouth, NH appear on Food Network show

PORTSMOUTH — After closing their doors for the winter, owners of The Striker will have their plates full in April.

Primed to reopen their restaurant on Thursday, two of the four co-owners of one of  downtown’s staple restaurants will also be featured on the new Food Network series “Chef Boot Camp” later this month.

“(We’re) very excited to be featured. Rejuvenated,” said co-owner Chris MacDonald, who will appear on the show. “And we’re looking forward to the reopening.”

Hosted by renowned chef and former Top Chef contestant Cliff Crooks, each episode of Chef Boot Camp takes three restaurant chefs and assesses “their skills in the kitchen and address their areas for improvement,” according to the Food Network.

The show’s season is set to premiere Thursday, April 8 at 10 p.m. The Striker representatives will make their Food Network debut on the April 29 episode.
