Minneapolis' Smack Shack to appear on Cooking Channel show

The seafood specialists will feature on 'Food Paradise' next week.

Fans of the Cooking Channel may see a familiar Minneapolis restaurant on an episode being broadcast next week.

Smack Shack, the seafood purveyors found on Washington Avenue in the North Loop, will make its bow in a new episode of "Food Paradise."

The eatery, which started as a food truck in 2010 but now has three permanent locations in the Twin Cities, will be featured on the show that broadcasts at 8 p.m. Wednesday.

To mark the occasion, it will be holding a virtual viewing party for followers on its Facebook page.

Smack Shack owner and chef Josh Thoma will lead the viewing party, and will answer questions and "share behind the scenes details."

You can find the Smack Shack Facebook page here.

As well as the North Loop, Smack Shack also has eateries at the Potluck food hall in Rosedale Center, and at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
