This Wednesday night, May 6th, a very special “secret” menu item at Mason’s restaurant here in Nashville will be unveiled on the Travel Channel series “Man Finds Food”. Host Adam Richman travels the country on a quest to uncover unique hidden food treasures, and during each show he unveils both off-the-menu items and off-the-grid restaurants.
