You know you can't leave without seeing a great shrimp flip or onion volcano. Joining us to celebrate the 50th anniversary and demonstrate the experience chef tony. Happy anniversary, 50 years my friend. Yes, it is. It started in 1964. First restaurant started in new york with four tables. It's been every since. Four tables in new york. In harlem, new york 50 years ago. We had the british invasion 1964 and tokyo invasion. Always a lot of whacking on the table going on. Can you catch a full scallop in your mouth? That would be amazing. Chef tony, why is it so popular? What's the key? We key right in front of the guest and have interest with the guest and involve them like home cooking style. We get to see all generations. I've been seeing three generations boyfriend girlfriend, become husband and wife and mom and dad. You've got to go to benny. In college, we'd go to benny in d.C. Once a week. I've got to tell you the truth. I've been carrying this lie with me forever. We always said it was somebody's birthday when it wasn't. They sing. What's your birthday? We can't sing the birthday song. We might get in trouble. Whoever is cooking they always have a good joke. Where did you learn that? Youtube. They are good joke tellers. We have benny hah hah. Let's throw that up in the air and have kit catch it? It's like a salmon. Look at that lobster. Like a bear catching a salmon. Can you you do that? What's the key to the shrimp flip? Are we doing it? We need shrimp. Raw scallops instead. We've got to cook those. I don't think the raw scallop would be a great one. I need to get in here. Kit, we've got to get you going here. Watch this. I tell you what, we're going to make an onion volcano. We're going to find the missing shrimp when we come back. You can't find the shrimp. Where did the shrimp go?
