ell, I don't know if just anyone would cross the threshold of eating establishments with names like
A Salt and Battery
New Cod on the Block

uthor Ben Brusey has proof - he's '
scoured the globe from Shanghai to Sydney to find the world's best-named restaurants, bars and cafes.
ere are a few more tantalizing samplings that he uncovered during his quest:
Booty's House of Crabs
Cluck U Chicken
The Cod Father
Lick a Chick
Obama Fried Chicken
Crabby Dick's of Delaware
... and there are plenty more! Really!
his pocket-sized, mostly pictorial tome takes you through North America, Europe, Asia and Australia on a rib-tickling and sometimes puzzling tour of some of the yummiest places in which to open a menu. Make sure you take a copy of
Pu Pu Hot Pot
with you next time you're traveling the globe in pursuit of gastronomical bliss.
