They’re Bad for Your Heart and Proud of It

Iggy Lena and Bob Kutnick knew it was a good idea — open a medically themed sports bar with unfashionable menu items, such as Chili Chest Pain Fries and The Heart Stopper, a 3-pound burger. Decorate with a heart defibrillator and a dialysis machine. Make the tables look like wheelchairs, put salt and pepper in pill bottles, and present the bill in a plastic first-aid kit.

The result is their 6-week-old Heart Stoppers Sports Grill in Delray Beach, where the menu warns that “consumption of our food will definitely lead to obesity” and there is a standing offer of free food to anyone over 350 pounds.

But this week, Lena and Kutnick got some bad news — a federal lawsuit from Heart Attack Grill in Chandler, Ariz.

    Nice pairing with the piece on the world’s fattest man. The man and this restaurant were made for each other.

    They deserve to be sued.

    You know at first this is amusing. But on reflection it is disgusting.
