Andrew Zimmern

Locals caught sight of Andrew Zimmern all over town this week. 

Andrew Zimmern, host of The Zimmern List on the Travel Channel, was spotted in Charleston this week filming at a variety of favorite restaurants. This wasn't his first visit to town. In fact, he's featured Charleston on Bizarre Foods and even shot a commercial for Renaissance Hotel last year that featured plenty of local celebrities, like Mike Lata of FIG and The Ordinary and Elise Testone, the singer who was a finalist on American Idol. 

As he traveled through town this week, fans and restaurants broadcast his visit through social media. He was spotted at Martha Lou's, Callie's Hot Little Biscuit, The Ordinary, Leon's, Rodney Scott's BBQ,

This chef from Portsmouth ran into Zimmern not once, but twice. First at Leon's and then at The Ordinary.

Callie's Hot Little Biscuit also got a visit. 

He dined with chef Sean Brock at Nana's Seafood. 

Zimmern gave the final word on his trip to Nana's via Twitter:
