Phantom Gourmet speaks at MRCC meeting
By Joan F. Simoneau, Community Reporter
Marlborough – Dave Andelman is a famous food aficionado who loves to eat out and as such, makes over a thousand restaurant visits each year. As his alter ego, the “Phantom Gourmet,” he visits local restaurants to profile on his popular television show that airs weekly on TV38 and WBZ4 in Boston. Recently he spoke at a Marlborough Regional Chamber of Commerce meeting where he told tales of his exciting adventures in the culinary world.
“Our show is really about information and entertainment, not reviews of restaurants. We show you the place and let you make a decision on your own,” said Andelman.
His most recent area of interest was Boston’s South End.
“There are some real cool restaurants out there that we are visiting and plan to mention them to our viewers,” he said.
Andelman has also formed the Restaurant and Business Alliance, a trade association that provides restaurant and business owners with a strong voice in government and media. Andelman said he was taking an active interest in the minimum wage increase debate being waged by legislators and keeps informed on all matters affecting the restaurant business.
He and his brother Michael formed the Phantom Gourmet Company that also produces best food events in Boston, including a food festival, BBQ Beach Party, Beer and Food Phest, and the Phantom Gourmet Hot Dog Safari, an annual event that benefits the Joey Fund and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
