Chefs on the Tube

Spinasse Chefs to Guest Star on Food Network’s Chefs vs. City

Cameras seen at Anchovies and Olives, Bastille, and Top Pot.

Sign seen on April 1 outside the Top Pot Donuts on 5th.

Update: I got a note from the people at Spring Hill in West Seattle saying the restaurant got a visit from The Food Network last night, and a Twitter friend says she saw the crew at Pike Place Market. Apparently the show shot in Tacoma before Seattle, and is now en route to Portland.

I just got confirmation that the Food Network cameras I saw outside of Anchovies and Olives earlier this week were indeed shooting an episode of Chefs vs. City.

The way the show works is this: hosts Aaron Sanchez and Chris Cosentino team up against two local foodies to seek out the city’s best edible finds “in a series of food-related challenges.”

Which Seattle culinary experts will take on the hosts?

According to PR rep Lissa Gruman of Gruman and Nicoll Public Relations, it’s Chef Jason Stratton and Sous Chef Carrie Mashaney of Spinasse.

Nosh Pit readers also reported seeing cameras at Bastille in Ballard on Tuesday, and, yesterday, at Top Pot Doughnuts. Apparently making donuts is one of the “food-related challenges.”

A clip form Chefs vs. City’s Chicago episode is below. The episode air date is to be announced.
