In strict adherence to Travel Channel guidelines no Celebrity Chefs were hurt, injured or whacked in the making of this film.
Tony: (contemplating Hiram's hot dogs, burgers, fries and beer) Now, I've been a chef a long time, but I'm not a snob. Man can not live on foie gras alone.
Mario Batali and Tony have been close personal friends for years.
Bruce Springsteen allusions:
Madam Marie's Readings, Tarot Card and Crystal Ball building, was immortalized in the song "4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)."
Tony: People have been pushing cliches and misconceptions about Jersey since long before my "Glory Days."
This is an obvious reference to the hit song of the same name.
