Man vs. Food Enters Cincinnati

Review: King Wok Dim Sum

Two Events this weekend: Asian Food Fest and Farmer’s Fair
August 18, 2011

Adam Richman, star of Man vs. Food on the Travel Channel, is in town, and he’s already hit up a restaurant (are you surprised?). First stop? Senate, where he dined on My Wife’s Salad, scallops, bacon frites, beignets and creme brulee (according to Dan Wright, owner of Senate, he said that it was “the best one he’d ever had”).  Wright said, “He was as nice as could be and shook every staff member’s hand on the way out.” He’s pictured above with Lana Wright, who heads up the front of house.

Richman told John Kiesewetter last year that he wants to try Skyline and wants to shoot an episode here– does he do his own pre-filming recon?  Izzy’s recently had a contest designed to create a submission tape for Man vs. Food with their gigantic Reuben, and Hollywood Casino does a gigantic burger that they’d also like to have on Man vs. Food.  I’d be interested to know where he’s heading (And Adam, I have a few suggestions!).

8:53 AM:  God bless Twitter.  Adam Richman tweeted to me: “I just had the scallops & salad. My crew had frites & it was the beignets that I praised. #realfacts” 

So he likes the beignets.  

11:30 AM: Confirmed:  the MvF crew is shooting at Findlay Market’s market house.

1:25:  They’re filming b-roll, including footage of Luken’s and a pig.

3:48:  He ate at Pho Lang Thang.  Here’s a pic (courtesy Pho Lang Thang):

  1. […] he might be heading elsewhere. Maybe Izzy’s?  That’s one possible location that our Wine Me, Dine Me blog mentions, which notes that Izzy’s did an eating contest last month with a gigantic […]

    Any word on when the Cincy episode will be aired?

  14. AHopkins says:

    He need to go to Joe’s Diner and go after the Shadeau Big Bite challenge.
     
    He also should check out A Tavola as he is a pizza guy.

    I just saw him at Findlay Market!  We weren’t allowed that close to him due to filming.  But he did point me out between shots and told me he thought my shirt was cool!  I love MVF and Adam!

    Suggest that he try the Uber Terminator at Mecklenburg Gardens.

    he needs to go to the Sunnyside Grill and have the WTF burger.  too many ingredients to list in this small space.

    He also ate at Pho Lang Tang today.

  27. NickKnows says:

    He needs to head out to Miamitown and try the WTF Burger. I swear it’s about 9-10 inches high.

    So i am a huge fan of the show and adam as well. I happen to work at an establishment at findlay market and was thrilled to discover the mvf crew unloading as i arrived for work. When i was able to slip out for a small break i tried to get a picture and was denied by a thug/ security/ picture nazi. Thoroughly disappointed by this- also he did not stop at our shop. I will never look at adam the same again. Shame on you adam- too big for your britches i guess.

  29. You are Not Clooney, Richman says:

    Why is he telling everyone not to alert his whereabouts but tweeting that he is at certain areas when he arrives?  Also, someone from his posse stopped us at Findlay Market and said we couldn’t take photos.  Furthermore, they then asked to see our photos on our iPhones… a little ridiculous.
