We drank that whole boot of beer by the end of the shoot. So I really have no recollection of what transpired at Hiedleberg’s Restaurant in Yorkville. I know Tony convinced me to eat head cheese for the first time in my life and I loved it. And I know I ate a lot of pork off his plate because it was super delicious.
We also did a segment at Eisenberg’s Deli down near Madison Square (the fact that my last name is Freedenberg and the producers decided we’d eat at Eisenberg’s and Hiedleberg has got to be a total coincidence right?). We drank Lime Rickys and Egg Creams and spoke of New York past even though I’ve only been here for 12 years and I’m still discovering New York present. I can’t say for sure that part didn’t get cut. I do know that, unlike the episode I did with him two years ago, he’ll get my name right.
We also did a shoot in the Checker for the “Outer Boroughs” episode that should air this summer so look out for that. We did a mini Bronx tour and had some soul food, jerk shrimp, and rabe.
