You know you've made it when...

As Frank Zappa said many moons ago, "You can't be a Real Country unless you have a beer  and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of a football team or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a BEER."  Of course, the standard that I've always used for real fame and notoriety is: do you have a sandwich named after you?


But, I have to admit, I was quite surprised to look up from my hummus and veggie pita-wrap, to see Anil Gupta's name on the table tent. 

Yup, that's right!  The man who tattooed Jenna Jameson, Christian Slater, Rosie O'Donnell and our very own Righteous Redhead has an eponymous Tandoori Chicken Wrap at all the Pita Grill locations.

I think my allocated day-dreaming time today will be spent constructing my own gastronomical namesake...

Yup, Anil did my first tattoo in the early nineties when he was working for Wes Wood -- before tattoos were legal in NYC.

Of course, Anil Gupta is not an uncommon name but it is awesome to think that it's the tattooist adding extra flava to a tandoori wrap.

I'm hungry.

Sure, it's not an uncommon name but, based on the reply in broken english that i got from the waitress, it is indeed the tattooist Anil Gupta who used to be a joint partner with Pita Grill.

Go figs...

ahahaha. Didnt know he was a joint partner in Pita Grill. I need to get in on that action and have a Kakoulas Gyro named after me.
