Canada’s Travel + Escape channel will feature a mobile Charleston dining venture on a new food show it is launching.
Steven Page, the former lead singer for Bare Naked Ladies, is the host of “The Illegal Eater,” which seeks out unique underground dining and pop-up restaurants throughout North America.
Producers will film an episode focusing on Charleston’s L.I.M.E. — Local. Impromptu. Moveable. Evening — on April 19, according to statement.
“This is a moble experience, and as such a top-secret unique location is selected for each event,” Travel + Escape said in the statement today. “In keeping with the allure of the underground supper club, confirmed L.I.M.E. ticketholders will receive venue information in the form of a password and instructions two days prior to the event.”
It went on to note that the meal could be served up “anywhere, from the middle of a vineyard, to a roof top downtown, aboard a boat cruising around Charleston Harbor, on the beach, or a short walk to Travel + Escape publicist Penelope Jean said the show will air in the summer but the date has not been set. It was not immediately clear whether the channel is available in Charleston on cable or satellite TV services, but it’s widely available in Canada.
“It gives Charleston some international exposure,” Jean said.
L.I.M.E was created by local chef Renata Dos Santos in 2010.
“It’s more than just food; it’s an out-of-the-box experience with a creative format to help the community grow; from farmers, butchers, musicians, as well as local nonfood related businesses, unique venues and local charities,” Dos Santos said in the statement. “We’re forging the last frontier of food and beverage.”
L.I.M.E. events raise money for nonprofits. In this case, proceeds will go to the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association.
The show is being produced by Canada’s Farpoint Films. Page was filming in New Orleans this week, according to Facebook posts.
“They’re just hitting the top culinary cities,” Jean said.
