Well, it finally happened. Rock and roller Johnette Napolitano—better known to the world as Concrete Blonde—came out guns blazing on Twitter as she attacked Jen Carroll for using her moniker as a proposed restaurant name. Napolitano started the conversation off with this classy inquiry:

Carroll, who counts herself a huge fan of the band, politely asked Napolitano if she didn't approve of the restaurant name. Napolitano responded by asking Carroll to pay her for using the name, then added:

As of right now, Carroll's restaurant is on hold for the foreseeable future, so it probably won't be an issue in the short term. We're sure that something will be worked out before Carroll ever puts pan to fire, as it appeared that the Top Chef was surprised by the attack in the first place. And since Carroll is a big fan of Napolitano's work, this probably drag out too long.

But, in case it does, we would like to extend a fair warning to Napolitano, who obviously doesn't know Carroll at all: Don't let the soft features and pretty smile fool you. Jen is Philly through and through, and is the kind of person who would enjoy picking someone else's molars out of her knuckles. Let's hope it doesn't get that far in the first place, though.
