And so we’ve arrived at the final episode of our 10th season of Check, Please! For a television show to make it to ten seasons is a big deal, but stacked up against the restaurants featured on Check, Please! this week, we’re just getting started!
This week’s episode is what we call a compilation show. Our show formula changes as we pick a theme and take a look back at restaurants that have been featured in past seasons. The theme? Long-lasting restaurants.

Each week on Check, Please! we have the pleasure of watching three people from different walks of life tell us about one of their favorite restaurants. They come excited and hopeful that everyone at the table will enjoy their selections as much as they do. And, why not? When you find a great place to eat, it’s fun to turn on others to it. But what happens when the restaurant you adore is not so lovingly accepted?

They’re baaack!

Whether I have a craving for an overwhelming portion of chicken parmesan or the city’s tastiest bowl of bottomless salad, Graziano’s is the place I go to satiate my hunger. For more than ten years, Graziano’s Brick Oven Pizza has sent me home with doggy bag after doggy bag of Italian classics. Good for lunch or dinner, alone, with my wife, or with a large group of family and friends, the exposed brick walls, accessible seating options, and friendly service keep me coming back... for the food!
