The Strip District always has been known locally as a food lover’s paradise. The lively stretch of road on Penn Avenue has something for nearly every level of taste. However, more and more innovative and critically acclaimed restaurants have popped up along the route, from the East End to downtown. This culinary renaissance will be the subject of tonight’s episode of “Chuck’s Eat the Street” on Cooking Channel, entitled “No Place Like Pittsburgh.”

According to the show’s description, chef Chuck Hughes will take a tour of downtown gastropub Meat & Potatoes and stop at fish lover’s paradise Penn Avenue Fish Co. He’ll visit the always-buzzing Bar Marco and see innovative Executive Chef Jamilka Borges in her environment. The tour of Pittsburgh’s blooming culinary scene along Penn will finish with a look at Salt of the Earth and its former executive chef, Chad Townsend, and his menu. Tune in tonight at 10.

Side note: We're loving all the attention our local chefs are getting; last night, Blowfish BBQ appeared on last night's episode of "American Grilled," which airs on the Travel Channel.
