The Check, Please! South Florida cast and crew recently returned to the WPBT2 studios to shoot five brand new episodes of the popular restaurant review series. Season 3 is scheduled to hit the air in January 2010. Award-winning chef and host, Michelle Bernstein, was back to corral a group of talkative foodies, and to share some enticing new recipes of her own. Sponsors for the upcoming season include Don Francisco coffees, Badia Spices, and Whole Foods Market.
Producers sifted through a pool of nearly a thousand applicants, vying for the chance to be a restaurant critic for a day. This season will include restaurant recommendations from such colorful characters as an inked-up tattoo artist, an opinionated newspaper columnist, and a fun-loving preschool director. A South Beach artist, Palm Beach private investigator, and a longtime flooring retailer (who's become a local legend) will also join the fun. Their restaurant choices are still under wraps, but expect a whole menu of mouthwatering options, from Korean to karaoke bar; from Peruvian to pizza.
Over the next two months, producers will be scanning the applications to find the next group of amateur critics for an upcoming studio taping in January. Visit the website to submit your picks. Keep those recommendations rolling in!
