Well depending on where you live I would say there are not infrequently a place or two who use celebrity names for their foods

Yeah, for example there is a salad place here where all the salads are named after famous people. It is annoying. I would like to order a COBB SALAD, not a George Washington Carver. I find it tacky.

oops. Misunderstood the question.

Sure. We have plenty of restaurants that name dishes after local sports heros or politicians. It’s standard.

Here is the menu for the Stage Deli. Look in the salad section. Their Cobb Salad is named after Mitch Albom.

There’s Peach Melba, and Chicken Tetrazzini. Is that what you’re looking for?

Supposedly the corned beef and pastrami combo at the Carnegie Deli in NY is called the Woody Allen. I’ve heard it mentioned several times, but the online menu did not reflect that.

There’s a bunch of burgers named after heavy metal bands, like Metallica, at Kuma’s Corners in Chicago.

There are some hot dogs at Pink’s in Hollywood named after some celebrities such as Martha Stewart, the band Three Dog Night and Ozzy Osborne. Scroll down to “specials.”

The Pizza Box in Glenside, PA has pies named after Al Pacino, Sylvester Stallone and Sophia Loren, amongst others.

This sandwich shop has a sandwich named after Kevin McCarthy, the idiot congressional majority whip.
I am ashamed to say I live in his district. The democrats don’t even run anyone against him.

Burger King has that Kevin Bacon Burger. Except I think they mostly leave off his first name.

I see a lot of Fitty Cents on menus.

Mitch Albom gets a salad? Good grief.

There’s the Elvis sandwich – banana and peanut butter.

It’s a drink many restaurants offer: an Arnold Palmer. Part lemonade, part iced tea.

Mickey Rooney vegetables. Small portions, dug up from the ground, much like the great wee man himself.

A football player, LeeRoy Selmon, has a restaurant named after him in Florida.
