Well, New Times will keep writing this story until every eatery is shown on TV (and probably a number of times afterwards), but Pauline Martinez is super hot, so just keep showing her in every recap..

His recommendations are pretty hit and miss. Oh and he's a douche


Good for them.  Its nice to see local restaurants doing well and getting national publicity for it.  The thing that I like most about this show is that it really celebrates local restaurateurs and the communities they serve.  Whether upscale, downscale or midscale, just about every restaurateur on the show clearly loves and has a passion for what they are doing.
