Episodes of "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" — filmed in February and featuring six Utah restaurants — have begun airing on The Food Network.
Host Guy Fieri and the "Triple D" crew visit Sandy’s Tin Roof Grill and Salt Lake City’s Maxwell’s East Coast Eatery on Wednesday, May 7, in an episode titled "From Meatballs to Lollipops." Fieri samples Tin Roof’s made-from scratch breads, smoked meats and creative combos such as the Canadian bacon and potato croquettes. At Maxwell’s, he raves about the "larger-than-life, 10-ounce meatball." The episode also will air on Saturday and Sunday, May 17 and 18; and Sunday, May 25.
On Friday and Saturday, May 9 and 10, Sammy’s Bistro and the Silver Star Cafe, both in Park City, get some air time in the "Cross Country Comfort Food" episode. At Sammy’s, Fieri gets a taste of the restaurant’s "low brow gourmet" including the signature chivito club. At Silver Star Cafe, he samples the pork osso bucco, vegetarian mushroom stroganoff and the crispy pork belly. That episode also will replay on Saturday and Sunday, May 17 and 18.
Finally, on May 16 and 17, Triple-D visits Oh Mai in Holladay, where the menu features Vietnamese family classics including pho and banh mi; and Aristo’s Greek Restaurant in Salt Lake City, where the grilled octopus and "righteous" lamb tacos wow the TV chef. This episode, titled "International Family Style," will rebroadcast on Saturday, May 24, and Wednesday, May 28.
For all air dates, check local listings for times.
