Season 2 Episode 18

The American Girl Cafe feat. Katie Molinaro (@EatItKatie, Comedian, & Foodie)

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

Part 1: Comedian and food influencer Katie Molinaro doesn't hesitate to join for a silly dining experience, so we hit up the American Girl Doll Store Boutique & Bistro

○ Katie grew up with a doll she didn't vibe with

The Secret Menu mini-game category: Unfun Children's Toys

○ American Girl was founded by a cancer-surviving textbook writer who used her royalties to make this brand explode

○ "The first experiential dining experience"

○ The brand forayed into movies while inspiring aspiring filmmakers to make American Girl stop-motion animations

○ A guy fails to realize that this place just simply isn't for him in this week's Yelp from Strangers

Part 2: Katie's back, and it's time to review the place!
○ I made an impulse buy and got a doll chihuahua named Barker Posey

○ The stalls in the bathrooms have hooks so you can take your doll with you, and that's Way Too Much...

○ The service team had a noteworthy amount of men on it, and one of them's name tag didn't match his employee badge which makes us wonder What's Going On Over There?

What we ate this week: Cinnamon Buns, Glitter Bomb Sprite + Edible Straw, Ch**se-Topped Cucumber, Fruit Skewer, Meatballs, Marinara, Ravioli, French Fries, Turkey Club, The AG Burger with Tomato Bacon Jam & Fried Egg on a Pretzel Bun, & Chocolate Mousse in a Flower Pot
○ Katie details the best and worst restaurants she's ever been to in the Calibration Station

Location: Century City, CA
