Food Network show to film in TC soon

TRAVERSE CITY — Area residents will have at least one chance to be part of the “Food Court Wars” filming action in Traverse City beginning this weekend.

“I know they’re coming Sunday, but what the setup is or what time, I’m not sure,” said Jim Smolak, co-owner of 7 Monks Taproom, which he said will be a secondary filming location for the Food Network show produced by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. “I think the idea is they’re using 7 Monks as a local restaurant that will be presenting one of the team’s foods.”

The show also will film Monday at the Grand Traverse Mall, according to a Food Network flyer posted Tuesday on Traverse City Tourism’s (formerly Traverse City Convention & Visitors Bureau) Facebook page. The flyer urges residents to come to the mall food court for free food from the shows “talented contestants” and directs those who want to be part of the action to email

See Thursday's Record-Eagle Food page for more on the story.
