In Boystown, we know them as the Hearty Boys, but soon Chicago’s very own Dan Smith and Steve McDonagh will be known as the "Party Line" guys when their new show begins on the Food Network.
The popular caterers, who this spring beat seven other chefs from around the country to become the "Next Food Network Star," learned last Thursday their pilot cooking show on the Food Network has been picked up for an additional 26 episodes.
"Party Line with Dan and Steve" starring the Lakeview duo, will focus on throwing a great bash for any occasion.
Though the partners and parents of an adopted baby boy remain busy with the new show schedule, they will continue to operate their signature restaurant, HB, A Hearty Boys Spot
, 3404 N. Halsted. Reservations are accepted at 773.661.0299.
