Second season for Neighborhood Kitchens begins 4/13/13

greygarious Apr 12, 2013 05:38 AM

First up will be Joanne Chang's places. In the first season, other than Simply Khmer, in Lowell, I can't recall seeing her with any cooks who were not Latino. Hopefully the upcoming shows will focus more on discovering interesting food than on the nationality of the people preparing it. The title remains problematic....to most folks, it implies smallish local places, but the first season showcased, for the most part, very well-known spots. True, every restaurant that isn't out in the middle of nowhere is in some sort of neighborhood, but I don't think the average viewer would have expected the Liberty Hotel's upscale Scampo to have been included.

        We stumbled upon an episode last season set in the former Dosa Temple in Somerville (now Dosa and pizza or something that makes me wary about going back) which prompted us to try their delicious dosas. Just pointing out that it wasn't all hispanic. I completely agree with your take on the title of the show.

          It's Dosa and Curry, and improbable as it seems, the reports here on those pizzas have been very positive! See this thread:

            Don't be wary - still good vegan/veggie food and the pizzas are worth trying, although I think the pizza may be only take-out.
