"You go to New Orleans and you'll be in a classy restaurant and a rat will run across the ground. You'll point it out to the waiter and they're like, 'Yeah, that happens.' And you're like, 'What?'"
— Comedian Jim Gaffigan quoted in an Eater interview about his favorite foods, restaurants and cities for dining. In his recent book, Food: A Love Story, Gaffigan claims to love to eat but not be a "foodie." In the interview, he compares a rat in a New Orleans restaurant to Chuck E. Cheese as a restaurant mascot.
