The day starts in the old neighborhood on Staten Island and lunch at Lee’s Tavern where the guys had their famous clam pizza. Then, they head to Zeppieri’s & Sons in the Bronx to satisfy their sweet tooth with world famous Italian dessert Sfogliatelle. Finally, they cap off their mouth-watering trip with dinner at Fornos of Spain in Newark, New Jersey where they feast on authentic seafood paella and codfish croquettes.

On their way out to Napa, they come across the Choke Coach, a food truck that serves nothing but artichoke-based dishes. The guys finally make it to Charter Oak Winery in Napa for a tour of the vineyard and wine making process, and then cook up a delicious meal in anticipation of the Artichoke staff’s arrival. In the end, everyone arrives, the guys make a toast to Artichoke Berkeley, and food and drink flow as the sun sets in Napa.

On their way to Las Vegas for a convention, Fran discovers that his cousin Sal, being the “financially conscious” type, has booked them on a connecting flight through St. Louis.

He has mapped out iconic eateries in St. Louis to visit, starting with Tiffany’s Diner on Rt. 66, serving up traditional St. Louis breakfast since 1960. Then, the guys head over to Russell’s on Macklind to try a unique spin on another classic, Gooey Butter Cake. No layover is complete without discovering the local pizza scene, so Sal and Fran head to Frank & Helen’s for a slice or two of their famous St. Louis-style pizza.. Turns out, St. Louis is so delicious these pizza masters might just extend their stay.
