dining around was an old tv food network show that i rather liked. very simple and straightforward. alan richman and nina griscom sat in a restaurant booth on a soundstage and reviewed three restaurants from arounf the country per show. film footage in each place. brief interviews with owners/chefs/etc. brief discussion about the restaurant by alan & nina. done. not very flashy or sexy so we will probably never see the format again, but i enjoyed seeing actual places. kind of like chowhound, used it as a resource to hunt down a specific places on road trips.
