The Fab Five are back. Well, not the original Fab Five, but a new quintuple will bring expertise in various areas of culture to sloven men in need of makeovers.

Momofuku mastermind and Mind of a Chef alum David Chang is getting back on the airwaves with this new Netflix series. Chang will take a bit of a Bourdainian approach and travel the globe, eating and drinking with various chefs, writers, artists, and entertainers. Chang says he wants the show to be “a collaborative forum, a place where it’s okay to have strong opinions and honest conversations about food.”
