The Daily Meal dishes on what's hot and trending in the world of all things food and drink for Thursday, June 16, 2016.
Today's first course?
Vinnie’s in Brooklyn has become the world’s unofficial Willy Wonka of pizzerias. First it gave us the pizza box made of pizza, then the pizza inception, and then we had a laugh at the giant “wall” pizza. Now we can dig into a slice of pizza surrounded on all three sides by crust, instead of just the usual one. For anyone who has ever thought the crust is the best part of the pie, this is your pizza dream-come-true.We fully expect insanity from Vinnie’s creations and can’t wait to see what it comes up with next.

Last week, workers cleaned up two tons of French fries scattered across a Belgian City Hall. The delicious protest was the work of French fry kiosk owners whose businesses are threatened by new legislation passed by the government in Ghent. Vendors who used to have “first dibs” on renewing their leases and the right to pay five percent more than the highest bidder to keep their lease have lost this power, with new legislation giving the lease to the highest bidder. The vendors have tried to overturn this rule twice and failed.
That's today's daily dish, thanks for watching. Stop by tomorrow for another helping.
