His beloved Bradenton restaurant Jose’s Real Cuban Food had been scheduled to be seen at 9 p.m. on June 6 during an episode of Food Network’s popular road show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”
But now Baserva won't know until June 9 when the nation will be able to watch crazy-haired host Guy Fieri dine on his picadillo, paella and boliche.
"I got an email from Food Network saying there was a scheduling conflict," Basevra said. "It will be posted on their website and mine on June 9 as to the exact date of the airing."
(I'll have the info posted here, as well.)
He noted business has quadrupled since the news broke last month.
“It’s nuts, it’s absolutely nuts," Baserva said. "We really appreciate community helping us out."
What's Baserva expect in terms of customer turnout after the show airs?
“Forget it!” he said with a big chuckle.
Jose’s Real Cuban Food is at 8799 Cortez Road, Bradenton.
