Plot Synopsis

SUMMER RUSH is a four-part reality series that follows the Foy family, local restaurateurs that own three separate restaurants, as they work to keep their businesses operating smoothly during the busiest weeks of the year in the tiny tourist town of Bolton Landing, NY on Lake George in the Adirondack Mountains. Buddy Foy Jr. and wife Jennifer Foy operate the high-end restaurant, Chateau on the Lake, specializing in international flavors. Jesse Foy and wife Jessica Foy run the local burger and fish joint, Diamond Point Grille. Their parents, Buddy Foy Sr. and Cate Foy have owned one of the oldest places in town, Cate's Italian Garden. To survive the rest of the year, their restaurants must do enough business from Fourth of July to Labor Day to carry them all year long. The Foy family knows all too well that running a small business isn't easy, and they need the help and support of the whole family to make it through the summer rush. The Foys never know what obstacles the summer rush will throw at them. Husband and wife duo, Buddy Foy Jr. and Jen Foy, cannot seem to agree on the best way to drive more customers and profits. From taking a risk on a new pastry chef, to serving dinner without power after a large storm, to a big crash in the wine cellar destroying rare, expensive bottles of wine, and to last minute restorations before a big event, they must tackle it all together because one bad season could finish them for good. To get customers in the door, Jesse Foy offers new menu items and tests a new takeout service, possibly biting off more than he can chew. Plus, the pressure is on for Buddy Foy Sr. and Cate Foy as they await a local restaurant review from the Mayor. Each of the Foy family restaurants has its own unique specialty, but the one thing they have in common is that they must fill their tables with customers all summer long to make it another year.
On Thursday, June 25, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT, Food Network premiered "The Last Week of Summer," the season finale of SUMMER RUSH. In the week leading up to Labor Day, the Foys and their restaurants are under pressure to bring in customers and their dollars before the summer is over. Not all of the Foys are on track to reach their profit goals to survive the rest of the year. Jesse decides to throw a day-long BBQ smokeout at Diamond Point Grille, and The Chateau on the Lake promotes a flaming new dish to attract reservations. Cate and Senior's middle son, Keith, makes a surprise visit to Bolton Landing, causing Jesse to question remaining in the restaurant business, and Cate and Senior reveal a shocking secret to their sons.
