Check, Please! Bay Area
KQED’s must-watch foodie favorite, Check, Please! Bay Area is now in its seventh season. In the James Beard and Emmy Award–winning program, local diners are cast as restaurant critics, and each episode features three Bay Area residents sharing their favorite spots with beloved host Leslie Sbrocco (thirstygirl, Good Morning America). The question always remains: Will the three guests agree about their favorites? Check, Please! Bay Area airs every Thursday at 7:30pm with numerous repetitions throughout the week.
Check, Please! Bay Area is the one place you can discover Bay Area’s best eateries — from a sandwich counter to a four-star destination — recommended by local foodies just like you! For video, recipes, restaurant information and more, please visit kqed.org/checkplease and follow Check Please! Bay Area on Facebook and Twitter for more insider information, behind-the-scene photos and amazing giveaways.
Every episode, each guest chooses their favorite eatery and the other two guests visit under total anonymity — the restaurants are not notified that Check, Please! “reviewers” are dining there. After trying each other’s recommendations, they join host and moderator Leslie Sbrocco to discuss, dispute, and celebrate their dining experiences with lively commentary.
Host Leslie Sbrocco is an award-winning author, wine connoisseur, newspaper columnist, and speaker. The series is produced by award-winning producer Tina Salter.
