‘Daily Show’ Head Writer Dan Amira Is Hunting Down the Restaurant with the Most Brothers in Its Name
With his work on pause due to the AMPTP’s refusal to pay writers their rightful worth, Dan Amira is using his newfound free time and practical skills as head writer of The Daily Show to do some hard-hitting investigative research and answer a question no else has ever had the courage to ask: What’s the restaurant with the largest number of brothers in its name?
Inspired by the ubiquitous NYC staple 2 Bros. Pizza, Amira fell down a rabbit hole of other numbered brother restaurants. The first few were other pizza joints, but as the numbers increased, the offerings began to vary. His digital hunt has taken him across state lines to Six Brothers Diner in Little Falls, New Jersey, to our friends to the north at Twelve Brothers Bar Pizza in Toronto, all the way across the Atlantic to Los 15 Hermanos, a tapas bar in Spain.
It should be noted that Amira is taking his search for the largest assortment of brothers in the culinary industry very seriously and verifying that the establishments are in fact restaurants as opposed to stores or markets. As such, he had to inform one follower who suggested 18 Hermanos, a Mexican free-range egg farm, that “it doesn’t look like they SERVE food, and I think that’s the bare minimum we’re looking for here. So unfortunately I don’t think this counts. Adios.”
Along these lines, he has a pending DM to Eighteen Brothers Hookah Bar asking about their culinary options. In the meantime, if you or a loved one know of a Nineteen Brothers eatery, please reach out to Amira, he’s in too deep to stop now.
