Sure, you're willing to jump on a plane to check out that celebrity chef's buzzy new restaurant. And you're perfectly happy to spend weeks chasing down a reservation for that impossible-to-get-into hotspot. But how far are you really prepared to go to score an unbelievable food experience that will rock your world, change your life, and make you the envy of your friends?
As BravoTV.com's new series Going Off the Menu will prove, the food destinations most worth tracking down are often totally under-the-radar, top-secret, and definitely closed off to anyone who doesn't have an insider connection. Luckily the co-hosts—renowned underground chef Russell Jackson and award-winning food documentarian Liza deGuia—have the hook-up. At least most of the time.
Watch as the hosts work their connections, begging, haggling and going to jaw-dropping lengths to give their clients access to the ultra-exclusive destinations they're dying to get into—whether that's a decadent invite-only supper club, an unforgettable backyard party, a place that specializes in experimental cocktails the likes of which you've never seen, or an incredible taco dive hidden in the back of an automotive repair shop.
The six-part series is set mostly in L.A.'s scorching-hot underground scene, and features celebrity guests including Lea DeLaria from Orange is the New Black, Josh Flagg of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, Tory Belleci of MythBusters and Amirah Vann of WGN's new series Underground.
Tune in to see the first three episodes of Going Off the Menu on Monday, April 18 on BravoTV.com. The remaining three episodes will go live on Monday, April 25.
