Let's Be Friends

albiernats150.jpgWhat does it take to become a "friend of Al" at see-and-be-seen steakhouse Al Biernat's? An undercover (male) power luncher for Town & Country mag was immediately befriended by the restaurateur and got a 25 percent discount for being a "FOA" on his very first visit, but a regular female luncher tells Nancy Nichols she's neither met Al nor ever received a discount. UPDATE: Sounds like this whole story was based on false premises; read an explanation by Biernat himself here. [SideDish/DMN Pop Culture Blog]
