We spend a lot of time sifting through piles of books, admiring cover art and pondering titles. And perhaps it was the smell of fettuccine Alfredo wafting from our neighbor’s cubicle, but we couldn’t help but notice recently that—with tiny tweaks—many popular book titles would make excellent restaurant names. In fact, here are nine that are sure to get your mouth watering. Bon appétit!
Eat Prey, Love
A carnivore’s delight! This meat menagerie serves up fresh flesh from around the globe. Aardvarks to zebras—it’s all fair game here.
Lord of the Fries
You’ll kill for the last deep-fried tater at this tropical shack. (Commemorative ketchup-filled conchs sold separately.)

Look no further for heavenly treats in pastry form.
The Scarlet Pumpernickel / The Catcher in the Rye Bread
A duo of New York City delis giving Carnegie and Katz’s a run for their pastrami.
Visit this pop-up hamburger joint before it…disappears.
Snack on British finger foods (mini shepherd’s pie, anyone?) at this Yorkshire farmhouse converted into an idyllic eatery.
The Old Man and the Seafood
If you’re looking for variety, look elsewhere. The only thing on this menu is marlin.
Bridget Jones’s Dairy
Lactose intolerants beware—London’s infamous singleton doesn’t use soy milk in her frozen confections.
What book do you think would make a great name for a restaurant, slightly tweaked?
