      No No No

      please dont suggest this!

      A) they will be super annoying filming on Hell Night
      B) it will make it that much harder to get a reservation after all the rubes see it on FN

      1. re: ac106

        Maybe we could get some crappy restaurant that's struggling to turn a profit to simply start preparing a 10 lb. burger made with an entire bottle of Dave's Hot Sauce and 24 slices of cheese. They could serve it with a gallon of frozen yogurt on the side or something, and if you eat it all, you get a t-shirt! (sorry, only size XXL and XXXL are available.) Then, the real Hell Night won't be affected, some struggling crappy restaurant can keep employing people by its new-found food-network-prompted awareness, and the food network can continue showcasing "outrageous" food. It's really a win-win.

          good idea, DD&D already ruined on of my fav places. How about suggesting the No Name.

            I haven't been but doesn't Eagles Deli fit that role?

            It's been on PG and when my nephew was here looking at colleges, it was high on his list. .and he no doubt saw it on PG

            Dok Bua got the call. There's got to be some benefit in being an adult uncle..:)

            Dude, the things sell out in less than 30 mins. I don't think it could get any harder, I'm betting that the person taking the reservations is at 100% efficiency already

            1. re: ac106

              Eh, OP would have found it if (s)he did any work outside of reading this thread. Which (s)he would have to do to find out what Hell Night is anyway.

            1. Do you work for the Food Network?

              I'm getting ready to order some ghost chilis. Maybe I'll make a ghost chili and bacon martini or something ridiculous like that. :-b

              If you're looking for a local restaurant that makes unusual dishes, perhaps the bone marrow pizza at Coppa in the South End?

                It's possible that this is for Meat & Potatoes, but it doesn't sound quite right for that one. I was asked recently via a friend of a friend of a ... kind of thing about potential places in Boston for that show.

                1. re: jgg13

                  Actually it would seem that it's for the show "outrageous food", considering there's a show of that name on the FN. Learn something new every night :)

              2. O Ya has potato chip sushi as well as their amazing foie gras sushi with chocolate-balsamic sauce.

                1. re: Boston_Otter

                  Very few thinking gourmets/ food lovers would consider any of their preferences....."outrageous". It is the offshoot of the pseudo reality frenzy. How about "My favorite recipes for compost".

                  1. re: ospreycove

                    Or maybe substitute compost for compote on pancakes. :-)

                    1. re: ospreycove

                      Yeah, in the food world, I reserve the word "outrageous" only for describing the bill or the degree to which wines are marked-up.

                      1. re: ospreycove

                        Personally, I don't consider any of their food "outrageous", but I can definitely see Tom Pizzica saying "Whoaa! Check it out, I thought I'd seen some craaazy sushi, but this James Beard award-winning restaurant puts a homemade potato chip on theirs!" (etc.)

                        1. re: Boston_Otter

                          coppa is fun; i assume that toro is similar hardly outrageous though.
