Samantha Johnson and chef Angie Brown, who opened Soul restaurant on Germantown Avenue last fall, will be contestants on NBC's "Chopping Block."

The eight-episode reality show, in which eight two-person teams compete for a $250,000 grant to open their own restaurant, premieres in prime time March 11. The cranky antagonist is British chef Marco Pierre White, who could be the love child of Gordon Ramsay and Simon Cowell. 

How did they do? See Sunday's INQlings column for more, and check out Inquirer critic Craig LaBan's review of Soul in Sunday's Arts & Entertainment section.
