Fame Bites goes inside the belly of the entertainment beast. We're dishing out where the celebrities are eating, what they're eating and who they're eating with.

We recently caught up with Mario Lopez - the host of "Extra," former Saved By the Bell-er and Eatocracy's brand-new Chief Ab Correspondent - to shoot the breeze about Cajun cooking, how he maintains his svelte figure (not like we’re staring or anything) and whether or not A.C. Slater and the rest of the Bayside Class of '89 really did ever eat anything at “The Max.”

Paula Deen was in the building taping Saturday's episode of Your $$$$$ (1 p.m. ET), so we just followed the wafting scent of butter 'til we found her and captured her on our Flip Cam.

There's plenty more to come, including her plea of innocence on the charge of "butter crimes" and why Frank Stitt oughta "shut up" on the topic of shrimp 'n grits, but for now, here's her take on why the most "romantical" meal includes "bone sucking."

Yup, we've been in a Mood this week, as evidenced by our crankypants Lunchtime Polls, so we figure we'll counteract the kvetch by sharing a few food-related things that have made us happy lately.

  • Meats / Mets
  • Our pal Paul Lukas of Uni Watch and ESPN column fame has combined two of his great passions, the Mets and meat, together for the first time in T-shirt form. Sez Lukas, "Inquire for special rates for vegetarians and Yankees fans." Get a closer look at Uni Watch.

  • "Pimento Cheese, Please!"
  • Filmmaker Nicole Lang Key is seeking funds to finance a film called "Pimento Cheese, Please!" - all about that classic Southern spread, pimento cheese. To help her out, visit Kickstarter or join the Facebook group.

    Lunchtime poll – bad bar behavior

    The sun is shining, the New York City Wine & Food Festival has begun, and we just made a naughty joke to Paula Deen, who giggled aloud. Things are definitely on the upswing, but we feel compelled to close out Gripe Week.

    Monday, we polled our reading public on restaurant flaws they just can't stomach. Tuesday, it was irksome grocery store shoppers. Wednesday, we kvetched about party poopers, Thursday was hideous restaurant patron behavior and today - we're taking a shot at bars.

    From short pours and weak drinks to stanky restrooms and WHAT? I CAN'T HEAR YOU OVER THE MUSIC! soundtracks, there are some ripples at the watering hole that we just can't suck up and get past.
