Todd Barry Talks Eating Alone and Answers an Eternal Sporkful Question

Posted by

Oct 07, 2012

In Sporkful podcast 168, comic Todd Barry joins Dan to discuss strategies for dining alone, including what types of restaurants are best, where to sit (table vs. bar), chatting with servers, and the glory of lunch specials.

Todd also takes The Sporkful Questionnaire and offers a novel answer for one of our favorite questions: What is a food that's not improved by the addition of either melted cheese or hot fudge?

Listen to hear Todd's take on this question and Dan's use of the term "cheesy goodness." He also offers a critical appraisal of all of The Sporkful's catch phrases.
