Somebody Feed Phil! Here’s The All New Season On Netflix! Phil Ate At All Of My Favorite San Francisco Spots!

“Somebody Feed Phil!”

It’s more than just a plea, it’s a terrific TV show that celebrates, food, travel and people all around the world!

Get ready to bite into a new season – because Phil went to some of my favorite places!

Phil Rosenthal was the Creator and executive Producer of the smash TV hit “Everybody Loves Raymond”, and he decided to explore the world and feed his passion for food and people!

In his first three seasons, he has gone all around the world: from Lisbon to Tel Aviv; Copenhagen to Chicago and many many more – and every episode is a funny, inspiring ode to the love of food and what makes the world such a great place to eat!

Each episode follows Rosenthal touring the cuisine of one featured city and surrounding area. The great news is that Netflix just released the fourth season last weekend!

Here is the trailer for season four:

Phil is hilariously funny, but more importantly, he is a passionate fan of food – and he showcases that love on his face for all to see – his expressions as he eats are what makes the show so special – here is was on The Kelly Clarkson Show explaining how he avoids gaining weight while filming:

In the fourth season, Phil went to San Francisco, and it’s a great look at the city – obviously filmed before the pandemic started – and he explores the city through the palate of some of the greatest Chefs in the world!

Phil explores San Francisco’s legendary Ferry Building with the legendary Chef Alice Waters, and he also ate with America’s first ever female Three Michelin Star Chef, Dominque Crenn:

My wife Alex and I were lucky enough to eat at two of her acclaimed restaurants, and that’s her posing with us in her kitchen…she and Phil share some food from Petit Crenn:

Alex and I ate there as well, and if you want to see why Chef Crenn is a brilliant food artist, just click on my story here:

Phil also ate at one of the greatest Oyster bars in the world:

Welcome To The Swan Oyster Depot!

Phil meets the brothers who own this hole-in-the-wall Oyster bar that serves up incredible seafood, like this “Crab-samthemum” dish!

Phil had a blast eating here and so did we, because Alex found out there is a “secret menu” that you have to ask for and she did, which is how we got that gorgeous crab dish!

Finally, Phil heads an hour north of San Francisco is Napa Valley, where some of the world’s greatest wines are grown:

Phil hangs out with the iconic Chef Thomas Keller, who owns The French Laundry, one of the world’s greatest restaurants…and Phil eats the “Oysters And Pearls”:

It’s a phenomenal dish of poached baby oysters, caviar and custard – and Alex and I ate it as well!

We actually ate at The French Laundry this year, and had the chance to speak with Chef Keller for awhile, and got a tour of the kitchen where we posed with him and his Executive Chef David Breeden!

It’s simply the greatest food experience you could dream of – incredibly gifted Chefs in the kitchen and a superlative staff as well.

We were lucky enough to attend Chef Keller’s 20th anniversary celebration of The French Laundry a few years back – here’s a look at that celebration, plus what a meal at The French Laundry entails – click for pictures and more:

  7. Phil’s show sounds great, John. I remember your post about Dominique Crenn, she has a memorable face. Won’t it be nice when things return to normal in the world.

  8. John, that looks like the perfect TV show for you. I used to watch ‘Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives’. That presenter definitely did not avoid putting on weight. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
