After starting his own catering company and going to the Culinary Institute of America, Kwame Onwuachi hits the jackpot. He lands an externship at one of the most prestigious Michelin-starred restaurants in the country, goes far on the cooking show Top Chef, and has investors knocking at his door with opportunities to start his own restaurant.

But when he takes the offer that looks most promising, things go wrong — fast. His comeback involves a secret restaurant, Black Mirror, and a white guy named Mufasa.

This is the second part of a two-part series with Chef Kwame Onwuachi. Last he week he shared the first half of his life story live on stage, in conversation with Dan at the Miracle Theatre in Washington, DC.
