The next day, the teams shop. Once again, it's CJ, Tre, Howie, and Sara at the Fresh Market. Not finding enough rabbit at the store, Howie decides they're going to have to go with poussin for their first course. Tre tells us they are keeping the beef tenderloin, but adding a choice of lobster salad or house-cured wild king salmon for the first course, and, from the looks of it, monkfish as an alternative main.
Checking in on the winos, all we see is someone pouring wine out for a tasting. The camera pans up to show STEPHEN! STEPHEN! STEPHEN! Aw, welcome back! Stop wearing so much eyeliner! Stephen takes Howie and Hung's surprise at seeing him very calmly. Almost too calmly. Nonchalant, even -- like people are surprised to see him every day. Stephen takes them through a wine tasting, starting with a sake. Nice. I had some newly-released spring sake at our neighborhood sushi place, and it was incredible. I never knew sake could be so nuanced. The cuts make it look like Stephen's being his usual babblicious self, and Hung tells us, "He may come off as arrogant but he knows his stuff." Brian tells us that while Hung and Dale were busy with their sommelier, he and Casey scrounged around on their own, just buying what they liked.
