Nashville and Charlotte are two of six cities to be featured in this original reality series that showcases NFL players dining and dishing in their favorite local restaurants with host Jackie Long, wife of NFL star Jake Long.
Co-produced by Dolphin Digital Media and Accord Productions, each 30-minute episode will highlight three different NFL players on-location at three different hotspot eateries in each city. The six cities to be featured in this first season are Nashville, Charlotte, Miami, Atlanta, New York City and New Orleans. Throughout each episode, Jackie Long will engage in lively discussions with her famous guests and get the inside scoop from the executive chefs on the secrets to their signature dishes.
"'Jack of All Tastes' is a very exciting series as it crosses multiple genres including food, reality, celebrity and professional sports," said Bill O'Dowd, CEO, Dolphin Digital Media. "Jackie Long is the perfect host for this fun, unscripted show as she's incredibly personable, she's a diehard foodie, she loves sports and she's fearless when it comes to trying the favorite dishes of these NFL stars. Viewers are going to love watching Jackie travel across America to discover hidden gems with some of their favorite professional football players."
In Nashville, star Tennessee Titans players Taylor Lewan, Anthony Fasano and Steve Hutchinson took Jackie to their favorite dining hotspots. Offensive tackle Taylor Lewan, an All-Rookie selection out of Michigan, dined with Jackie at The Southern in Nashville's burgeoning SoBro district. Anthony Fasano, a star tight end out of Notre Dame, took Jackie to Le Sel in Nashville's music row. Steve Hutchinson, a recently retired seven-time Pro Bowler, and his wife Landyn, renowned for her "Living with Landyn" lifestyle blog, introduced Jackie to 404 Kitchen in the Gulch neighborhood of Nashville. Following each meal, the executive chefs at each restaurant -- Matt Farley (The Southern), Jason Brumm (Le Sel) and Matt Bolus (404 Kitchen) – gave Jackie a tour of the kitchen to get the inside scoop on how these athletes' favorite dishes were prepared.
In Charlotte, Carolina Panthers players Ryan Kalil, Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis also shared their favorite meals with Jackie. Center Ryan Kalil, a five-time Pro Bowler and USC graduate, dined with Jackie at Mortimer's Café & Pub, which has been an Uptown Charlotte staple since opening its doors in 2010. Linebacker Luke Kuechly, a three-time Pro Bowler out of Boston College, took Jackie to the Cowbell Burger & Whiskey Bar, known locally as the purveyor of gourmet burgers for the Uptown Charlotte restaurant scene. Fellow linebacker Thomas Davis, a Pro Bowler from the University of Georgia, and his wife Kelly, introduced Jackie to Lola's on Brevard where they dined over some delicious Southern fare.
Following each meal in Charlotte, the owners of the three restaurants -- Brandon Viebrock (Mortimer's and Cowbell) and Bruce Stewart (Lola's) – introduced Jackie to the executive chefs for a tour of the kitchen and insights into the meal preparations.
"What I love most about what we are doing on 'Jack of All Tastes,' besides eating all of the delicious food, is showing a different and more casual side of these elite athletes," said host Jackie Long. "They are all interesting and relatable people, and we get to see them in real life situations over a shared meal, which is a lot of fun. All of our athletes bring something fascinating to the table, literally!"
