Greetings LArry,
A GastroPub is a term that was coined in England not too long ago.
It means a Public House (or a bar) that specializes in not so bar-like food in a nice relaxed enviornment.
The Handlebar has really turned around.
I have a full review on my website.
I'm from Mt.Sinai as well.
Have you been there yet?(Handlebar, that is?)

But yea, if he wasn't in my neck of the woods I wouldn't know of him either.

Wife and I watched Kitchen Nightmares a couple of times, and while we liked the show we often wondered the same things.
I was mainly referring to his language, not his fame. However, winning more games than any other basketball coach in college history has to count for something other than notoriety.

It was his language that I was thinking of as well, that and the infamous chair LOL.

But yes I will give him that, more wins without a doubt.
