As host of the reality show "Man Vs. Food," Adam Richman takes on challenges like eating a 2041gr. steak in one sitting. On each episode, Richman visits at least three different restaurants in a city. He describes the food, but also the city itself to fulfil the mission of the Travel Channel. All of the restaurants are listed on the Food Channel site, but a few stand out because Richman either dominated the challenge -- or had it dominate him.
