TV-Show Restaurants You Can Visit In Real Life

Have you ever wanted to slip into a booth at Tom's with the Seinfeld gang or dig into a gumbo at Dooky Chase? Perhaps you'd like to be a fly on the wall and eavesdrop on Frank Underwood as he plans his next nefarious plot. First We Feast has posted a guide to the best real-life restaurants we know from TV. Here are three to get your mouth watering:


Address and phone: 5801 Pulaski Hwy, Baltimore, MD (410-483-2379)
Signature dish: Pit beef sandwich
Best TV moment: Wee-Bey’s love of hot-as-hell food might come as no surprise to viewers, but it did make D’Angelo raise an eyebrow when the guys visited Chap’s for a bite. “Damn, Bey, how can you stand that shit with all that hot shit on it?” D’Angelo asked incredulously when Bey slathered his sandwich with horseradish. Wee-Bey doesn’t miss a beat. “The trick is not to give a fuck, boy. I got this.” (Photo: Shiny Metal Tiger)


Address and phone: 231 E Redwood St, Baltimore, MD (443-842-7430)
Signature dish: Braunschweiger sandwich
Best TV moment: In Season One, Frank Underwood’s (once and future) right-hand man, Doug Stamper, meets with the D.C. chief of police in the wee hours of the morning at this famed diner to kindly request turning a blind eye to Representative Peter Russo’s indiscretions. Oh, Doug, if you only knew what was in store. (Photo: Yelp)


Address and phone: 144 2nd Ave, New York, NY (212-228-9682)
Signature dish: Pierogis and borscht
Best TV moment: While Ben’s Pizzeria might make an appearance in the opening credits, it’s a scene at this 24-hour Ukrainian diner that truly taps in to what the show’s all about. After a series of terrible mishaps, Louie finds a tiny bit of peace eating breakfast with his pajama-clad daughters as the sun rises. (Photo: Yelp)
