Reminder: See these restaurants on the Cooking Channel tonight |

Tucson’s culinary chops will get national attention once again on Thursday, Nov. 30, when the city is featured on Chef Jordan Andino’s Cooking Channel series “Late Nite Eats.”

Andino is a Filipino-American chef who came up working at such established restaurants and Jean-Georges and Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry. In 2016, Andino opened the popular 2nd City restaurant in New York City, which labels itself as a “Filipino taqueria.”

He was also named one of People magazine’s sexiest male chefs of 2017.

“Late Nite Eats” follows Andino as he makes his way to late-night dining spots in cities across North America.

In Tucson, that meant eating dishes at several places: a pork nacho plate at Pasco Kitchen on East University, pasta with chorizo and crab at Dante’s Fire on East Grant, and Cajun gumbo with frog legs at The Parish Gastropub on North Oracle.

“Late Nite Eats” joins a long list of food-themed shows that have visited the city, including Food Network’s “Ginormous Food” and Andrew Zimmern’s “Bizarre Foods” series.

The Tucson episode of “Late Nite Eats” premieres at 8 p.m. Thursday on the Cooking Channel. The Parish, 6453 N. Oracle Road, will be holding a viewing party from 8 p.m. to midnight.
