Donatelli’s not your average ‘Diner, Drive-in or Dive’
WHITE BEAR LAKE — Donatelli’s soon will be known far outside its loyal local customer base.
The restaurant is being featured on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” a Food Channel program. A crew from the show was in town recently for two days of nearly constant filming.
It all started when a former local resident now working as a producer on the show was in town eating at Donnatelli’s — as she often had growing up.
Thinking the establishment would fit the show, she sought out Trish Appleby, one of the restaurant’s operators who was working at the time.
