Watch Louis C.K. Eat a Double Dinner, AKA a 'Bang-Bang'

New, 2 comments
Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Here's a clip from an episode of Louie from last night which finds comedian Louis C.K. taking part in an eating extravaganza he and his brother (played by Robert Kelly) call a "bang-bang." So what is a bang-bang? "It's where we go have a whole meal at one place, and then go right to another place and have another one. Bang-bang." Suggested bang-bangs include double meals like Mexican-Italian. Sushi-Pizza. Or Barbecue-IHOP.

The occasion is the brothers attempt to get healthy (starting tomorrow), so for their "goodbye to all that" double header and do a bang-bang of "Indian-Diner." They head to Banjara, an Indian restaurant in New York City's East Village, and then to a diner (by the looks of it the now-shuttered Bowery Diner, now Chez Jef). This is hard core food and eating porn footage, and the brothers just gorge themselves at both the Indian restaurant and at the diner (at one point Louie's brother wipes the Indian food smeared across his face with a piece of flatbread and eats it). Go, watch:
