Table for three: Celebritie­s chow down in all-new series


What would you do if you saw Chrissy Teigen (“Chrissy’s Court”), David Chang (“Ugly Delicious”) and Joel Kim Booster (“Fire Island,” 2022) out for dinner? Hopefully, you’d sit and watch. The brand-new series “Chrissy & Dave Dine Out” airs a new episode Wednesday, Feb. 7, on Freeform. Episodes stream on Hulu the next day.

Following Teigen, Chang and Booster as they book tables at the most popular, must-try restaurant­s across Los Angeles — sometimes unexpected and unusual eateries — this series allows viewers to watch as the trio joins their famous friends for dinner parties unlike any other, jam-packed with celebrity gossip, Hollywood glamor and delicious, mouth-watering food.

“While David gets his hands dirty in the back of house with the restaurant’s chef, Chrissy and Joel will hold court in the front of house, hosting an always loose, unexpected and entertaini­ng dinner party with undeniably delicious food and great conversati­on . ... Celebrity guests handpicked by Chrissy, Dave and Joel will bring laughs and unfiltered conversati­ons where no topic is off limits,” said Freeform in a press release.

Teigen’s husband, John Legend

(“La La Land,” 2016), will also appear as a celebrity guest, alongside the likes of Regina Hall (“Girls Trip,” 2017) and Simu Liu (“Barbie,” 2023), with each celebrity treated to a taste of a different cuisine.

The series premiere, for example, finds the group dining out at the wildly popular Pizzeria Bianco, where chef Chris Bianco serves up what some call the best pizza in the country. During their meal, they are joined by late-night host and comedian Jimmy Kimmel (“Jimmy Kimmel Live!”) and his wife, writer/producer Molly McNearney (“Murder Mystery,” 2019), who talk marriage, meals and more.

The group’s next outing calls for a couple’s night, as Chrissy and Dave bring their spouses (Dave being married to Grace Chang, “A Missing Piece,” 2019) out for a double date alongside Hollywood power couple Kumail Nanjiani and Emily Gordon (both of “The Big Sick,” 2017). In honor of their “spicy” night out, the six head to La Casita Mexicana, where they enjoy cuisine from the Jalisco region of Mexico.

Billboard magazine reported that “Teigen previously starred in Chrissy’s Court for a total of 30 episodes . ...

She also doubles as an executive producer [for] ‘Chrissy and Dave Dine Out.’ Chang is a restaurate­ur and author who founded the Momofuku restaurant group. Booster is an actor and writer who wrote, produced and starred in Hulu’s 2022 rom-com ‘Fire Island.’”

See what this talented trio tries next, as a new episode of “Chrissy & Dave Dine Out” airs Wednesday, Feb. 7, on Freeform, and Thursday, Feb. 8, on Hulu.
