KATU Television’s Restaurant of the Week traveled to Seaview, Washingtonon November 2nd to record a series of three of these popular culinary features for AM Northwest and for KATU News. The Portland station’s award winning Creative Services Department visited The Depot Restaurant, The Shelburne Inn, Restaurant & Pub, and The 42nd Street Cafe 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.
Steve Denari, Director of KATU creative Services had this to say, “Restaurant of the Week has been a tremendous success for both AM Northwest and the restaurants featured in 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 compliments 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.”
AM Northwest (M-F, 9-9:30 a.m.) will air the three minute Restaurant of the Week segments for three Thursdays in a row in November. Each Restaurant of the Week segment will receive double exposure with an encore airing of the segment at 7 p.m. on KATU.2, the digital station 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 minute and a half version of the Restaurant of the Week segment during its newscast (7 - 9 a.m.).
