Who doesn’t get into a rut when it comes to picking out a restaurant? There must be so many places to eat in town, but where are they? Well now Mount Prospect residents will have an opportunity to discover just how many great eateries are located right here in the Village when they tune into Dish’n Out Mount Prospect on MPTV. Dish’n Out Mount Prospect is an exciting and informative new show on MPTV, that features unique restaurants and eateries located throughout the Village.
The program is a collaborative effort developed by the Community Development Department, the Public Information Division, and the Television Services Division. Dish’n Out Mount Prospect takes viewers to the small out-of-the-way establishments that offer diverse cuisines. “In a world where cookie-cutter corporate food establishments have dominated the restaurant scene, I am especially interested in exploring and sharing the unique mom-and-pop eating venues with the audience. I think they will be amazed with some of the one-of-a-kind menus and savory food selections that are available in the Village,” said Executive Producer Howard Kleinstein.
The show, debuting in September 2015, will familiarize viewers with some of the 80 plus locally-owned restaurants and eateries. How does a restaurant get selected for a segment on the show? Village staff will randomly pick an eating establishment, which is then offered an opportunity to appear on the show. Each show features three different restaurants; which are located in the northern, central and southern areas of Mount Prospect. MPTV will produce six shows for a total of 18 restaurants for the first round of
“People drive right past wonderful and unique restaurants every day without ever stopping in for a new eating experience,” said Senior Planner Nellie Beckner. “We hope this new show will allow residents and non-residents alike a peek at what’s inside these eateries and whet their appetite for a new dining experience.”
WGN and WIND radio personality, Lisa Wolf, will host the new restaurant show. “I love talking to people who are as passionate about food as I am,” said Wolf. “Just hearing the stories about each owner’s culinary journey and how that experience led them to their Mount Prospect eating establishment is going to amaze viewers.”
Residents can see productions of Dish’n Out Mount Prospect on MPTV, Comcast and WOW Channel 17, at 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. nightly.
