Regional restaurant review program, Check, Please! Arizona, which includes shows in Chicago, San Francisco, Miami, Kansas City, and, now, Arizona, is seeking nominations for local and independently owned Tucson restaurants.
For those unfamiliar with the publicly broadcast show, Check, Please! began in Chicago. The format features three reviewers, along with a host, who discuss a number of restaurants in which they’ve all had the chance to dine at.
In 2001, a “lost” Chicago episode resurfaced, which featured then Illinois senator, Barack Obama.
Those interested in nominating a Tucson restaurant – along with themselves as a reviewer – may do so at azpbs.org/checkplease.
The full announcement, which can be viewed here, states:

The next guest could be you!
