For the 10th straight year, October is Dining Month on OnMilwaukee, presented by the restaurants of Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, dining guides, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as voting for your "Best of Dining 2016."

It seems the Travel Channel has its cameras pointed at Milwaukee once again.

Crews were in town this week filming for an episode of the hit show "Food Paradise," which highlights must-stop food spots across the country that offer one-of-a-kind dining experiences. The show has previously dropped by Milwaukee to spotlight the Milwaukee Beer Bistro in Riverwest and Cafe Bavaria in Wauwatosa.

On the docket for this upcoming episode, which will air on an undisclosed date in 2017, are two local restaurants with a flair for unique eats.

The first is The Vanguard, 2659 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., a Bay View favorite featuring creatively executed housemade sausages and sides. From a photo posted to the restaurant's Instagram account, it appears that sausage-lovers of all ages got in on the action, and we can’t wait to see these sweeties featured during their 15 minutes of fame.

The second confirmed location is The Saloon on Calhoun with Bacon, 17000 W. Capitol Dr., a recently remodeled Brookfield sports bar known for its creative takes on bacon-laden fare that offers all-you-can-eat meat candy every weekday from 4 to 7 p.m.

Stay tuned to OnMilwaukee for more information about the upcoming "Food Paradise" episode and when it will air.
