Hard To Swallow 

Roadfood made them famous. Memphis made them sick. So says Jane Stern whose new book, Two for the Road: Our Love Affair with American Food, she co-authored with husband Michael. As Jane recently told the Tucson Citizen: “Michael and I may go to 12 restaurants [a day!] – three or four for breakfast; four for lunch, four for dinner. When we can’t eat more, we hide it under lettuce or dump it in a plastic bag in my purse.”

Or the toilet.

“Worst was the time we checked out this (trendy) restaurant in Memphis that shall be unnamed. It was our 12th [!] meal, and they knew who we were and were watching. There was not a thing I could eat – mostly undercooked fish. … So I put most of it in my napkin and dumped it in the ladies’ room toilet. I swear it got stuck. Pounds of oily fish and a napkin.”

Quick: Name the restaurant.
