About The Show & Host
My name is Mike Baro and I am a music industry veteran that has worked with superstars such as Drake, The Weeknd, Enrique Iglesias, Lil Jon, The Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, Martin Garrix, Shawn Mendes, and many many more. I’m a huge fan of Anthony Bourdain & F*ck That’s Delicious. I wanted to create a TV show that visited some of the best hole in the wall food places in multiple cities that you might have heard about via WORD OF MOUTH.The show interviews the people that own and work in these restaurants to hear about their history, journey, dreams, and life. Each episode features my friends that are music artists/celebrities who will sit down for conversations with myself centered around food and culture. Along with the sit downs, every episode features a music performance from emerging & established music artists in front of each restaurant.Season 1: 6 Episodes
