Kristen shops for food quickly, and admits that she's overwhelmed. She picks her own cheese and meat. She says that she had this idea when she was watching French cooking shows as a kid. Lizzie interviews that they have to execute Kristen's concept and idea, but they are responsible for their own dishes to the judges, so it's tricky.
Stefan, Sheldon, and Josh meet back up to pick up their tables and chairs. Sheldon says he likes farmer's tables (no, Sheldon) and Stefan pretty much ignores him and chooses what he likes. Sheldon interviews that Stefan has a strong personality (he's bossy, you can say it) so Sheldon is choosing his battles. And honestly, he's right about the tables. Stefan interviews that he wants to take charge so that he can impress Danny Meyer, who's a big deal.
Twenty-seven hours until opening. The equipment and tables are delivered and everyone works to get things set up. Kristen and Josie discuss how to set up the kitchen and come up with a layout that Kristen likes because it will enable her to touch every plate before it goes out. Brooke and Josie are inside setting out glassware and Josie says that she needs to go start roasting her bones for her bouillabaisse. This is important - she said she was going to start that nearly a full day before service. Keep that in mind.
Josh and Stefan set up the dining room while Sheldon gets some prep done in the kitchen. Meanwhile, Brooke and Kristen are putting flowers in vases for their dining tables and Josie is standing there doing nothing. Kristen asks if she's started roasting, and Josie says she'll do it now. So that's the second time she claimed she was going to start roasting, but instead seems to be wandering around and staring at things. No sense of urgency. Lizzie interviews that she roasted her bones near the end of day one so that she could start her stock early on service day. Kristen's whole team is in the kitchen prepping and someone asks who's using the ovens. Josie says she's not, and Kristen looks surprised, since Josie already claimed twice that she was going to start roasting her bones. Kristen looks frustrated and walks away, and Josie interviews that ideally she would have done that on day one but there was no time. Yeah, she was way too busy wandering around and staring into space. Here's management problem number one: Kristen should have taken a second to impress upon Josie that she needed to get that done, that she was disappointed that Josie didn't do it already, and that it had to be priority one in the morning. Just let Josie know you're onto her bullshit and then stay on top of her.
