Daym Drops features Connecticut restaurants in new YouTube show

Daymon “Daym Drops” Patterson is known for his food reviews on YouTube and plans to feature Connecticut restaurants in a new show, but with a different focus.

In February, the Youtuber posted on Facebook that he would be taking his team on a “foodie” adventure showcasing the foods Connecticut has to offer.

“The reality is [that] the networks I film food shows with never seem to allow me to come HOME and do my thing. So I’ll do it MYSELF!” Patterson said in her Facebook post.

Patterson has featured foods across the country on her Netflix show “Fresh, Fried & Crispy.” He has also appeared on national television with Dr. Oz, Jimmy Fallon and Rachael Ray. He hosted his own Travel Channel series, “Best Daym Takeout” in 2013, and starred in fast food commercials.

The show will be posted on Patterson’s YouTube channel with new episodes weekly.

“It’s going to be all about, Why Hartford? Why New Britain? Why Stratford? Why Stamford?” he said. “You’re going to learn a little about every city and town here in Connecticut.”

Viewers are used to seeing Patterson in his car, trying food, and giving a review on camera and Yelp. The show will show more of the owners, chefs and customers and less of Patterson. He said it was more about them than him.

“This time viewers will have the opportunity to hear what customers have to say about the food and hear from the owners and chefs,” he said.

Patterson is co-owner of Windsor’s MofonGo site, which sells Puerto Rican mofongo, mashed plantains with salt, garlic, broth and olive oil. He says it’s on the list of places to highlight.

“There’s no way I can talk about my condition without showing love to the things I’m still attached to,” Patterson said.

According to a Facebook post from March, filming for the show has already begun. “We are wrapping up New Britain with our Tuesday shoot and dedication to all restaurant owners in New Britain,” the post said. The post went on to say Middletown was the next location and he was “looking forward” to working with the three restaurants there.

Not only is Patterson filming his new show, but he’s been busy returning for what he calls “Season 2” of his concession stand in Dunkin Donuts Park. For a second year, he has partnered with Yard Goats Executive Chef Joe Bartlett to create new foods for the upcoming season.
