Signatures Ups the Renaming Ante

As reported on Metrocurean in October, the new owners of Signatures are looking for a new name. Now, they're offering a $500 gift certificate and a chance to guest host the viewing party for Chef Morou's appearance on Food Network's Iron Chef America to the winner of the naming contest, reports publicist Linda Roth.

You can submit your name suggestions by visiting the restaurant's Web site. The winner will be announced the first week of December. Even if you don't win, all entrants get invited to the Iron Chef viewing party.

Metrocurean is still holding out hope that Morou will get to school some Bobby Flay butt.
