Season 1

Food and travel writer Kae Lani Palmisano invites local diners to join in the conversation about great restaurants in the Philadelphia area. Each week, three regular people – not professional restaurant critics – recommend their favorite spot to eat out. They try each other’s picks, then come together to talk about their experiences.
