Dining Out Loud: Sitting in the Catbird Seat

Penny travels to Nashville to check on native-Chicagoan Ryan Poli and the work he’s doing at The Catbird Seat. Penny has a brush with “Ms. Uncongeniality”, samples sunflower seed risotto for the first time, endures a couple drunk ladies, and falls in love with a beet dish that even Barack Obama might love. Mike discloses he maybe liberates stuff from restaurants sometimes
