He waited in suspense for months because Food Network kept changing the air date on him.
Now it’s confirmed.
His Bradenton restaurant Jose’s Real Cuban Food will appear on the popular road show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” 9 p.m. Monday, Sept. 19 on Food Network as well at noon Tuesday, Sept. 20 and 9 p.m. Friday Sept. 30.
A nationwide audience will be able to see crazy-haired host Guy Fieri dine on Baserva’s picadillo, paella and boliche.
To accommodate the larger crowd, Baserva and his delectable food will be moving across the street to Aces Live; joining forces with Bradenton Beach resident Damon Fowler’s “Sugar Shack Mondays.”
The internationally acclaimed Damon Fowler Group will perform original blues and Americana music from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. and then start a second set after the show airs. The group will be joined by special guest Shar-Baby, a blues singer and guitarist based in Birmingham. Ala.
A second viewing party featuring Jose’s famed Cuban sandwiches will take place at Aces Live during lunch Tuesday.
“I can’t wait,” Baserva said. “I’m looking forward to see myself on national TV.”
