Rocco DiSpirito; Photo - NBCThe Daily News says there are operational issues with Rocco's reality restaurant. Like no one could see that one coming. Gothamist is still excited about the Southern Italian restaurant, Rocco, since it involves TV and food, two of our most favorite things. If Sam Waterston played the manager, we'd be living there. We just suggest that there's an inverse relationship between hotness of restaurant staff and actually getting a meal.

In other restaurant news, restaurateurs are getting on the "stop the ticketing blitz" bandwagon by fighting the Department of Health's new rules and regulations. One restaurant owner tells the Post, "It used to be, if you had two cracked eggs in a batch, you'd get one violation - if you even got written up for it. Now, each egg is considered a separate violation."
