Check, Please! Starts New Season: Hakkasan, Hy Vong, and a Female Impersonator

​Michelle Bernstein returns to host Check, Please!, the popular WPBT program where everybody is a critic. There will be an updated graphic opening, a revamped logo, new theme music (I can't remember the last theme song), and most importantly, new restaurants to critique.

This season's guest reviewers include a South Beach model, a Palm Beach financier, a golf caddy from Hollywood and Miss Finesse, a local female impersonator. Insert your own punchline.

So season seven begins Monday, January 23 at 7:30 p.m.; episodes repeat same time on Wednesdays and at 5:30 each Saturday.
