TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

Mrs. Robino’s co-managers Andrea Minuti Wakefield (left) and Robin Robino Mabrey (center) with Check, Please! Producer Caitlin Corkery in late August, when WHYY filmed footage for the episode inside the restaurant.

Legendary Little Italy pillar Mrs. Robino’s will learn who the secret diner was that recommended their inclusion on Thursday night’s episode of PBS Channel 12’s Check Please!

Promos for the foodie show promise to share “The family charm of homemade pasta at Mrs. Robino’s Italian Restaurant in Wilmington Delaware.” Check Please! convenes real diners for their candid takes on popular local restaurants and Mrs. Robino’s will be the third Delaware eatery featured this season. 

Earlier episodes have highlighted the fare at Hockessin’s The House of William & Merry and Wilmington’s Del Pez.

Each episode showcases three restaurants from the greater Philadelphia region, each selected by a fan who wrote to the show telling them why their favorite neighborhood spot should get the spotlight.  The trio of mystery diners eat their meals in secret, without divulging their reviewer status until the secret is broadcast during the actual show.

When we spoke with Mrs. Robino’s owner Andrea Wakefield back in July, she was caught off guard when learning that the diners had already visited her legendary restaurant in Little Italy.

“You mean they’ve already been here?” Wakefield asked the show’s producer, who responded, “and yes, I can tell, you, each of our diners at Robino’s had a great time.” Wakefield ignited a broad smile when she learned her restaurant would likely receive three thumbs up on the show.

 

This week’s three reviewers joining host Kae Lani are instructional designer Geo Banks-Weston, retired finance professional John France, and Student Services Assistant Emily Maher.  Producers won’t divulge which diner recommended Mrs. Robino’s. 

Other restaurants to be featured include the Morrocan feast at Marrakesh in Queen Village and the adult take on milk and cookies at Rex 1516 on South Street.
