Season 2 Episode 13

IHOP feat. Jasper Lewis (Writer/Actor/Internet Menace) & Katie Molinaro (Renowned Foodie)

In this episode of Fine Dining: The Search for the Most Mediocre Restaurant in America:

Part 1: Michael is joined by friend and "woman-of-God" Jasper Lewis to talk all things IHOP, the International House of Pancakes and chain restaurant juggernaut

○ Poor signage/menu descriptions leave Rooty Tooty Fresh 'N Fruity a mystery

○ What's Going On Over There with the barren Wikipedia page for IHOP?

○ Learn the history of the franchise, from its founder's interest in coffee to its acquisition of Applebee's (which it paid for in cash)

○ That whole "IHOB" thing

○ A Yelper recounts the restaurant's denial that there could be hair in his food because "no one who works here is hairy"

Part 2: A hyper kid listening to metal in the booth next to us is WAY TOO MUCH

○ Michael & Jasper discuss the viral list of places that "women don't want to be taken on a first date"

○ Jasper is all about our server's lack of vocal fry

Katie Molinaro (@eatitkatie) joins us to try Lay's exclusive Rooty Tooty Fresh 'N Fruity potato chip flavor○ The pancakes are good!

○ The biscuits are the worst Jasper has had in Los Angeles

○ Michael busts out the You-Must Bowl for a totally legitimate and not-at-all rigged drawing to set up next week's restaurant
