Animal and Son of a Gun chefs Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook give Paper Magazine an earful today about their favorite restaurants. Chick-Fil-A doesn’t make the cut this time around, instead Shook details his nine-year love affair with Greenblatt’s, where “you’re bound to see some of the craziest shit you’ve ever seen…You have wasted people, girls with their titties hanging out, guys wasted from West Hollywood, getting into fights.” Dotolo, for his part, recommends Pico-Union chicken-and-burger joint Dino’s, where he doesn’t really want to know “where the chicken is from” but enthusiastically endorses it over celebrity hot dog stand, Pink’s. In fact, dude hates Pink’s, putting it in its proper place when telling the magazine, “Pink’s is terrible. That’s just a tourist trap. Going to Pink’s is just as bad as going to New York and eating at Bennigan’s in Times Square.”
