A northeast Indiana restaurant is going to be getting more than 15 minutes of fame – closer to 20 – next week.


Nick’s Kitchen (506 N. Jefferson St., Huntington) will be featured on Travel Channel’s “Food Paradise” at 11 p.m. Jan. 16. The show features the best places to find particular foods across America. The episode’s theme will be “Pork Paradise,” featuring Nick’s breaded pork tenderloin, as well as the restaurant’s homemade pies and milkshakes, owner Jean Anne Bailey says.


It’s not the first time Nick’s tenderloin has gotten recognition. A year ago, the Indiana Office of Tourism named it one of the 46 best sandwiches in the state. In May, the tourism office included it on a food trail, meant to attract visitors to Indiana. In 2003, it was name-dropped in “Gourmet” magazine.


Bailey says the TV crew taped at the restaurant for about eight hours in August, interviewing customers and filming the food. The segment is due to last about 20 minutes.
