Here's the first episode of Food Club, a new web series by comedian/noted food enthusiast Aziz Ansari, comedian Eric Wareheim (one half of Tim and Eric), and writer Jason Woliner. The episode follows the trio as they bestow "Food Club" plaques upon Los Angeles restaurants (including Michael Voltaggio's ink. and Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo's Son of a Gun). Ostensibly, each episode will see the team decide if they should grant a restaurant a plaque or "burn the award in front of [the restaurant's] door]."
There are also side trips to taste-test banh mi and a recurring boat theme; restaurant critic Jonathan Gold also makes an appearance. Go, watch:
