According to the news release sent by KCTS, “Everyone has their opinion on the best sushi bar, burger joint or hidden-away neighborhood gem. Now Northwest eaters will have a chance to see how their favorite local spot stacks up on ‘Check, Please! Northwest.'” The show is already one of the top-rated locally produced series in five other cities including Chicago and San Francisco, the release said.
Every week, Check, Please! brings three guests from all walks of life together to hash it out over their favorite restaurants. Each guest picks one restaurant for the other two reviewers to visit anonymously. After sampling each other’s recommendations, they reconvene on the show to discuss, dispute, and celebrate their dining experiences. At the end of each show, restaurants are rated based on the panel’s discussion.
“Our viewers are going to love this series,” said producer Nicole Metcalf. “Seattle is a food lover’s paradise. Check, Please! lets regular diners take center stage to share and defend their opinions on the best food our city has to offer.”
