Reader Stanley sent us this photograph of what he described as a "low key PETA protest" from the other day. Two PETA demonstrators were protesting an Iron Chef America outside of Chelsea Market, where the show films. An episode of the cooking showdown featured a lobster challenge - Morimoto vs. Eme from Season 3. But the protest may have had an unintended effect: Stanley tells us that he was inspired enough to buy a lobster bisque at Hale & Hearty.

PETA probably wouldn't be too happy with Gothamist either - we were cooing about the great deal on lobsters at Fairway just the other day. But we do find PETA's information interesting, even if our views differ.
