EXCLUSIVE: Get a Taste of the Underground Food Scene with Bravo’s New Series 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.”
Catch the first three episodes of the series below (which do contain some NSFW language), but be warned: They will cause hunger.
Episode 1: Hungry to Hangry
Episode 2: Dance for Your Dinner
Episode 3: I’ll Show You Mine
