Bootleggers Old Town Tavern & Grill had a national shout-out today on the “Live! with Regis and Kelly” show. The Auburn restaurant was nominated Friday as one of five restaurants for the “Ultimate Hometown Grill Off” contest, submitting their Korean Style Skirt Steak for this week’s steak category. Starting July 24, readers can go online to to vote and watch a video of Bootleggers Chef Ty Rowe sharing his now-famous recipe. Johnnie Miller of Auburn recognized the familiar face when she tuned into the Regis and Kelly show Friday morning. “I said, ‘Oh my God, that’s Ty.’” Miller said Rowe absolutely deserves the attention for his food. “Every time we have company coming from Florida or Texas, it’s the first place we go to eat,” she said. “And usually the last, too.” Voting for this week’s contest ends Sunday at 7 a.m., and the winner will be announced on the Live! With Regis and Kelly show Monday morning. The winning chef will be flown to New York City to appear on the show Friday, July 31, to grill their recipe with Regis and Kelly. At the end of summer the “Ultimate Hometown” winner will be chosen. . Click here to vote for a chance to send Ty Rowe to New York City. Vote Now
