Oh, boy. This week the Travel Channel will be airing an episode of Food Wars that pits Grimaldi's against John's of Bleecker. Above is a preview video.

There are probably some nits to pick, primarily that the host says "San Marzano tomatoes, in Italy it's the only kind of tomato they're allowed to use by law." I hardly doubt that. I'm sure she got the whole certified DOP/VPN stuff confused. But it's TV — they're always starting trouble ;)

Looks like it'll be worth a watch. They've got friend of Slice Mark Bello of Pizza a Casa as one of the guest judges, along with Jeremy White, editor of trade magazine Pizza Today.

Travel Channel, Wednesday, November 17, 10 p.m. ET/PT
