Mario Batali has just upped the trash-talking ante for the upcoming Asphalt Chef competition against Texan chef Tim Love and Food Network star Guy Fieri. Batali has no beef with Love, who he says "has some serious stuff going at [his Ft. Worth restaurant] The Love Shack." Fieri doesn't get off so easily: in the video below, Batali shows up at a T.G.I. Friday's to check out the kind of food he "should be nervous about" (Fieri has appeared in commercials for the restaurant chain). Looking over the menu, Batali says, "I don't see any pictures of Guy Fieri in here, but I know that this is one of his restaurants."
