Early word on ''The Restaurant''

Another order of tempers flambe is on the way for the second season of NBC's The Restaurant. The reality drama's six-episode return will focus on chef Rocco DiSpirito's oil-and-vinegar relationship with financier Jeffrey Chodorow, who ultimately seizes control of the struggling Manhattan eatery. ''This season's going to make last season look like Sesame Street,'' DiSpirito says. Then again: ''You'll see less of me flipping my lid and more of me being a guy who manages a business.'' Sounds scrumptious. (spring)
