Watch Rainn Wilson Destroy Hipster Foodies on Conan


It was Rainn Wilson's birthday last week, and the Backstrom star told Conan he celebrated by going on a fancy date-feast with his wife in New York. It was mostly great, except for the whole foodie obsession thing he's noticed. "Oh, you've got to go to Ming Mong's restaurant because the chef is half Ethiopian, half Finnish," he ribbed. "And he makes meatballs out of goat, and he makes a gnocchi with Meyer lemon and squid [some expletive TBS apparently hates]." Then Andy Richter slayed everybody with an even better, more alienating joke, and Wilson confessed he really went to Bâtard and ate their octopus pastrami because life is a beach.
