Going Off the Menu

Supper clubs, speakeasies and secret menus, oh my!

In Going Off the Menu, a new digital series by Bravo, viewers get a deep dive into the ever-growing culture of underground food. Hosts Russell Jackson, chef of San Francisco’s Black Cat who previously competed on Food Network Star, and Liza de Guia, the James Beard Award-winning creator of Food Curated, are exposing the trend of under-the-radar culinary experiences that are often hidden in plain sight.

From hunting down Japanese charcoal with Orange Is the New Black‘s Lea DeLaria to scarfing down street tacos in the back of a tire shop, the series watches like a lighter version of The Amazing Race in which the payoff is incredibly unique cuisine.

This is Bravo’s first standalone digital series, marking a major move in the network’s focus on creating original online content.

“We’re thrilled to satisfy the hunger of our passionate and food-enthused Bravo fans” Executive VP of Digital Lisa Hsia said in a statement. “The launch marks a continued investment in digital video content by the network in an ongoing effort to attract a broader audience of new consumers while also satisfying our core Bravo viewer.”

Episode 1: Hungry to Hangry

Episode 2: Dance for Your Dinner

I love it when they go off the menu!

If you’re looking for healthy, restaurant quality steaks/burgers/bacon and grilled vegetables I strongly suggest checking out an indoor grill. It just sits in your kitchen and cooks meat perfectly.

Check some of these grills out at http://www.indoorgrillreview.com it’s a whole website dedicated to indoor grills –
