Recently, Wendy Delgado and Piero Cotrina, co-owners of Omaha restaurant WD Cravings and a tenant at Investors Realty property Cherry Hills, was featured on the hit Food Network show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.” With the help of our receptionist, the property manager at Cherry Hills put together a watch party to celebrate, inviting all Cherry Hills tenants and their families to join. The party was held at Legends Patio Bar & Grill, where appetizers, beverages and desserts were provided (and some fun was had with pictures of host Guy Fieri’s signature spiked hair).
Located at 7110 North 102nd Circle, WD Cravings specializes in homemade pastries, gourmet comfort food and more. Wendy and Piero sat down to talk with us about the restaurant and their experience on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”
Q: How were you selected to appear on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives”?
A: The Food Network sent us and email, saying that someone from the network came to the restaurant and loved it so much that they started spreading the word, and they selected us to do a show.
Q: What dish is WD Cravings best known for?
A: The Cheese Wheel pasta! It was featured on the show as well! And we are the only restaurant in the state currently doing this right now.
Q: How has the appearance impacted you personally and professionally?
A: We have a lot of new customers that hadn’t even heard of us until they saw the show, so our following is growing every day. Personally, not too much, except that I turned my living room into a giant shrine for Guy Fieri followers. My goal is to turn everyone in my apartment complex into devoted supporters of the show.
Q: Any other thoughts on your experience or the watch party?
A: We truly enjoyed meeting all our neighbors and the owner of the property – we love to connect and meet new people.
