Jason Santos Hits "The Talk" on Tuesday
Fire up the DVR (and the oven). Chef Jason Santos (Blue Inc., and 2014 Zagat Boston Restaurant Survey "Key Newcomer" Abby Lane) will appear on morning chat show The Talk on Tuesday, September 24. Zagat stopped by his upcoming restaurant Back Bay Harry's today to check on the progress (smooth, steady, and now slated for an early October opening), when the Hell's Kitchen runner-up told us he'll guide Sharon Osbourne through crafting two dishes: honey dipped donut pancakes with Nutella ice cream and strawberry coffee salad, and swordfish with Brussel sprouts and butternut squash purée. (The latter is a twist on a similar dish slated for Harry's. You can check out its full menu here.) Santos says he'll also whip up some vegan alternatives for host Sara Gilbert. Trivia alert: the former Roseanne actress is engaged to famed songwriter Linda Perry (who scored a Grammy nomination for penning Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful"), Santos' cousin. So he may want to hang on to those soba noodles for future family dinners.
