The Mel’s Diner blog over at Broadcasting & Cable magazine (not to be confused with the actual diner of the same name) includes posts on everything from who dines where (see their 'Fly on the Wall' sightings series) to proper etiquette for working meals.

But the most interesting feature has to be the live interviews. Broadcasting & Cable magazine Executive Editor Melissa Grego reports on her dining excursions with the TV industry’s players at their favorite restaurants. The video below the jump is a Mel's Diner interview with Hugh Hefner, whose favorite place to eat is naturally the mansion. Following that, Grego answers questions for LAist about what she’s learned about the people and places of Los Angeles along the way.
