Feed Us Back: Comments of the Week

-Everyone has their own idea for what the best movie food scene is.

Maids: Are you kidding me! You missed When Harry Met Sally public orgasm simulation where granma says, “I’ll have what she’s having!!!”!

Leahsucks: “Hook” The pretend food with the lost boys. I used to do that when I was little and I had to eat something nasty, like brussel sprouts (which of course I now love).

KitKat: A Christmas Story….my favorite is when the kid eats his mashed potatoes like a piggy. Also the Chinese Restaurant scene when they cut off the duck’s head….fra, ra, ra, ra, fra, fra, ra, ra

kasia: mostly, I just protest that omission of “Little Sizzling Belly” in Hot Shots! which is surely a classic.

Moira: 1. Pope of Greenwich Village – when the cousin is eating an amazing looking hero in that little park at bleeker and 6th. Sorta obscure but worth a look for the sandwich and old school Greenwich Village scenery at least.
2. Godfather – when clemeza is trying to teach Micheal how to make the gravy. Because the godfather has to be part of every movie list and I really want to taste that sauce. Of course clemeza saying “leave the gun take the canolis” is also classic.
3. Moonstruck – The kitchen and cooking scenes from this movie are top notch. Damn I want to see the movie again right now!
Weird – I have a preference for Italian food, new york and movies from the 70’s.

– And we’ve also got some good guesses for where Obama will eat next:

miked: Meskerem, Dukem or some Ethiopian joint–we do have the largest community in the country, right?

Eick: I think an Ethiopian place is a good guess. I’m going to go a different route: Agraria – shows Barack’s commitment to family farms and responsible farming.

Gee Money: Michelle O. and Michelle Fenty were spotted at Georgia Browns downtown a few weeks ago. But I’m sticking with an Ethnic Theme, but bringing it home. Rasika.

Rubygirl: Old Ebbitt Grill close to his home or maybe Oceanaire for a seafood fix.

Keep those guesses coming for a chance to win! He hasn’t been spotted anywhere new yet, so voting is still open.
