PENINSULA - KATU Television's Restaurant of the Week traveled to Seaview on Nov. 2 to record a series of three of these popular culinary features for AM Northwest and for KATU News.
KATU's award winning Creative Services Department visited The Depot Restaurant, Shelburne Restaurant and Inn, and at 42nd Street Café and recorded documentary style segments that featured owners and chefs showcasing the high points of the restaurants, signature menu items, wine selection and restaurants' atmosphere.
"Restaurant of the Week has been a tremendous success for both AM Northwest and the restaurants featured the segments. The concept is simple ... viewers get an insider's look into the kitchens of top local restaurants. The owner or chef are able to tell their own story and present their favorite dishes and desserts to the audience. One of the biggest complements we get is how great the dishes look on camera. Using a film style of shooting, our photographer, Bryon Garvin, is able to capture the dishes using very little equipment," said Steve Denari, director of KATU Creative Services
AM Northwest, which is on from 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., Mondays through Fridays, will air the three minute 'Restaurant of the Week' segments for three Thursdays in a row in November. Each segment will receive double exposure with an encore airing at 7 p.m. on KATU.2, the digital station (Comcast 302; FIOS 464) that airs AM Northwest Primetime, Dr. Oz, MGM movies and classic television. In addition, each Restaurant of the Week segment will be posted on katu.com's AM Northwest section and available for viewing for a year. The following Saturday after each Restaurant of the Week, KATU News will air a 1:30 minute version of the Restaurant of the Week segment during its newscast (7 a.m. to 9 a.m.).
