TV Show Filming at Prasino Draws a Crowd
A Prasino manager said that nearly 300 people showed up for the filming of the show "Check, Please!" in the La Grange restaurant.
Check, Please! spotlights Chicago and Chicagoland restaurants with a focus on "real-people" reviews provided by guest reviewers. After a Check, Please! guest reviewer visits a restaurant, the show visits the location to interview chefs and staff and get interior shots of the location.
Prasino emphasizes local produce, organic products and grass-fed beef, and offers vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free meals.
No La Grange or La Grange Park restaurant has previously been featured on Check, Please!, although Vie in Western Springs has, as well as Xni-Pec de Yucatan in Brookfield. (The majority of the restaurants the show profiles are in the city or on the North Side.)
The Prasino episode of Check, Please will run later this autumn.
