I know there was a post a few days ago about Sophia's being on 'Diners, Drive-ins and Dives' and I responded to say that I knew the show would be filming at The Standard Diner on Central as well. Today I got a call from one of the owners of The Standard, telling me to invite all my friends to come to lunch tomorrow (Thursday 8/21), and be in the background for filming. I guess they're starting filming in the morning and will continue throughout the day. The restaurant opens at 11 am and if you wanna try your shot at being on The Food Network, while having a tasty meal, this might be your chance!
As a side-not and mini-plug, if you haven't been there in awhile, the menu has changed a bit because they got a new fantastic chef, Darren McHale, a few months ago. He is also doing a "Saturday Nights of Summer" special dinner, obviously on Saturdays, and I've been on the email list for those, and let me tell you, the menus make me drool!
