On the show, Foreman discussed cold weather diners (“Sometimes they’re afraid to leave their house because of the polar vortex”), his restaurant family (including Charleston which opened in 1997 and Cinghiale which he says “I named so nobody could say it or spell it. I apologize to everyone for that. It means wild boar.”), the state of business in Baltimore (“Let’s take care of each other a little bit.”) and the fact that he was born with a Congenital Heart Defect and will be serving as the chair of the AHA’s 2019 Heart Ball on Feb. 23 (“It’s the biggest issue of health in the region. I want to raise whatever I can for the Heart Association”).
