A television show about eating in the Detroit area sounds like my kind of show. As all my friends know, there’s rarely a time when I’m not eating something. And like most food lovers, I love to go out to eat. You get all the deliciousness of a fabulous dinner without the cooking and cleaning up!
I’m not the only one who likes to eat her way around metro Detroit. Dining in the D will premiere 7:30 p.m. May 4, on WTVS/Channel 56. Chef Tom Keshishian visits places in the city of Detroit and the surrounding areas, eating delicious food and taking with the men and women behind metro Detroit’s thriving food scene. (If you’re in Oakland County, you may remember the show from last fall, when it got its start on CMNtv, community
access cable channel 11.)
Breakfast pie. I'll take two, please.
In the first episode, Chef Tom, as he’s known to viewers, visits the Berkley Bistro and Cafe, where he tries out the Big Cheese — a wedge of baked pasta Alfredo that’s flash-fried and served in tomato bisque — as well as the Oak Park spring roll, the breakfast pie, and veggie pasta. (A personal shout-out to BBC for its ability to adapt to gluten-free diets.)
Jim Geary, owner of the Woodbridge Pub, and Chef Tom.
Chef Tom also visits Woodbridge Pub, of which I’m a regular customer, and tries the autumn strata of pumpkin polenta, jicama and cliantro/lime dressing; a Ghetto Blaster beer from Motor City Brewing Works, just up the street; Trumbull pie; chicken marsala; and a white bean and kale salad. (Side note — I haven’t had this particular kale salad, but I can vouch that Woodbridge does kale very well.)
Blue marlin of deliciousness.
At Lily’s Seafood, in downtown Royal Oak — which has also fed me delicious fish on occasion — Chef Tom has a selection so mouth-watering I can’t even type it without drooling. He dines on blue marlin with black bean salsa and chipotle sour cream, southwest shrimp and a hot fudge cream puff sundae.
Season one of the “Dining in the D” is pretty well planned out, the blog takes suggestions for future restaurants you would like to see Chef Tom visit. So tune in and get inspired for your next delicious night out in metro Detroit.
