It turns out the most hard-fought Hollywood deals concern what to order for lunch in the writer’s room. Centering on “nigh-holy” binders full of menus, decisions over what to order can last all morning and usually leave few content, excepting those times when pastrami is flown in from Katz’s Deli and pizza arrives from Chicago’s Lou Malnati’s. Everybody Loves Raymond creator and Umami-burger inspiration Phil Rosenthal even tells The Hollywood Reporter, “We would deliberate [lunch] as hard as any storyline or joke.” [THR]
