Travel Channel host Andrew Zimmern last visited the Rhode Island area in 2013 for an episode of his hit series “Bizarre Foods America.” On Tuesday, March 1 at 9 p.m. the Travel Channel airs Zimmern’s return to our area as part of his second series “Bizarre Foods: Delicious Destinations.”
The new episode features visits to Al Forno for their world famous grilled pizza, Haven Brothers for a Triple Murder Burger and Hemenway’s for Clams Casino, along with stops for Olneyville New York System wieners, Newport Creamery Awful Awfuls, Matunuck Oyster Bar stuffies and more. There’s a focus on what must be one of Zimmern’s favorites—looking back on his previous visit here—Portuguese cuisine, this time at O Dinis in East Providence. The episode also features Champlin’s, Flo’s Clam Shack and Jigger’s Diner, among other iconic Rhode Island food and drink places. There are video segments from the new episode online now.
