The Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” is planning on showing off two more South Jersey restaurants in March.
The episode titled “From Atlantic to Pacific," which airs at 10 p.m. on March 6, a restaurant from Somers point will show off its "crazy combos, like a killer crab melt and the bomb pork belly reuben," according to the network's episode highlights.
That description could mean the episode features the Grilled Cheese and Crab Cake Co. on West Laurel Drive, which has both those items on their menu. Another Somers Point locale, the Anchorage Tavern Restaurant, expected to be on the show hosted by Guy Fieri has yet to be announced.
At the same time on March 13, a Northfield eatery will show off "all kinds of authentic specialties like grandma's pizza and homemade pappardelle pasta."
All signs point to Carluccio's Coal Fired Pizza on New Road, which supplies "Grandma's Pie" complete with San Marzano tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella cheese, herbs and extra virgin olive oil.
Both locations were rumored to appear on the Food Network show when Press of Atlantic City and social media reports found Fieri's red '67 Camaro convertible in the area. It was confirmed in November that Fieri and a camera crew had visited about a half dozen locations in the same week.
Past "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" episodes featured Brigantine's Ernest & Son Meat Market and the Oyster Creek Inn Restaurant and Boat Bar in Leeds Point (both in December), and Atlantic City's Kelsey and Kim's Southern Cafe in mid-January.
