5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

Cookbook author, restaurateur, James Beard winner and darn good chef John Besh is owner of six New Orleans restaurants - August, Besh Steak, Lüke, La Provence, American Sector and Domenica.

When he's not cooking up the foodways of his native southern Louisiana, you might just find him chanting "Who dat?" for his beloved New Orleans Saints. With the NFL season officially kicking off tonight as the Saints defend their Super Bowl title against the Minnesota Vikings, it only seemed fitting that Chef Besh offer up his pre-game eating route to the Superdome.

We recently shared the story of Olde Salty's - a restaurant in North Carolina with a policy banning screaming children from the premises. Comments are still raging, and we'll share stories from both of the high chair later today, but the video above raises an issue, and we'd like to hear your stance and stories.

Why? Because understanding starts with conversation - even if you've got a differing point of view. Consider this your virtual dinner table.
