On Friday, the network announced that the 31-year-old star will lead Selena + Restaurant, a new "culinary adventure" that sees her explore some of the buzziest restaurants in Los Angeles.

The series is an expansion of Selena + Chef, an earlier show that saw the Disney Channel alum whip up a special dish in her kitchen with the guidance of various culinary stars.

Kicking off during the pandemic, Selena + Chef often featured the experts on a video call with Selena as they provided instruction for the recipe, but later seasons saw the guest visit in person.

Per Variety, Selena + Restaurant will feature six episodes and will see the Rare Beauty founder hit up Moo’s Craft Barbecue, Lemon Grove, Girl & the Goat, and more of LA's hottest culinary destinations.

Selena will again learn a signature dish from the featured chefs, but she'll also be striving to make a meal worthy of a spot on the menu.

When will Selena + Restaurant premiere?

As was the case for its predecessor, Selena + Restaurant's culinary masterminds will select a charity to receive a major donation from the program.

Selena + Restaurant will premiere on Food Network on May 2, with her first stop being Wolfgang Puck's famous CUT Steakhouse in Beverly Hills.

Selena + Chef, which earned a Daytime Emmy Award nomination in 2023, also had a Christmas-themed spinoff titled Selena + Chef: Home for the Holidays.
