"Jeffrey Chodorow is no dummy. And Claude Troisgros can certainly cook. And I--let us be clear--have not eaten at the bizarrely named (but reportedly good) new Rocco-replacement, CAVIAR AND BANANA BRASSERIO"

I'm thinking they were aiming for elegance and wild Rio. Maybe something like "Tropical Pearls" (although a bit sweet) would have been less bizarre. But going to the tasteless side, let's try

"Fowl Play"

"Colonade" for a memorable meal before that pesky colonoscopy....

editied to include quotes.

taint good

the growl and gristle - a dog pound & butcher. their slogan - "a real meat market..."

and if JC's new venture is a nightclub...liquor in the front, poker in the rear.

from overheard in new york:

Kid #1: Paper beats rock. BAM! Your rock is blowed up!

Kid #2: "Bam" doesn't blow up, "bam" makes it spicy. Now I got a SPICY ROCK! You can't defeat that!

This just in from down in DC: José Andres and Katsuya Fukushima at Cafe Atlantico have caviar AND bananas on their Valentine's menu:

EGG 147 WITH CAVIAR AND BANANAS

QUAIL EGG COOKED AT 147 DEGREES FOR 20 MINUTES TO CREATE A VERY VELVETY AND TENDER EGG, SERVED WITH CAVIAR, PASSION FRUIT OIL AND BANANAS. A WONDERFUL COMBINATION

Maybe Mabelline was onto something with the subtle sexual innuendo?

Be polite with dragons, for thou art crunchy and goeth down well with ketchup....

Maybe Bourdain should pick some favorites now? Consolidate it to a finalists list

My favorites so far--largely because they sound so creepily believable:

Dahmerama

Those Aren't Raisins!

Choads

The Lard Shack

Dingleberry's--An Eating and Drinking Establishment

We've Got Crabs!

Bayless Payless

Squid Marks

McShingles

Der Spermshack
