Headed back with a small group. The restaurants have already been chosen so no need to suggest others or criticize the selection. That's a done deal. Some we've been to and some we have not. Menu suggestions are welcome.

So, I was reading about seriouseats.com's salting of the steak before cooking a few days ago. I had a very thick NY strip from Whole Foods and decided to salt it and let it sit for about 3 hours before cooking it. I've done this before, but for less than an hour and it worked well. This time, I rin...

These folks will be at Tad Gormley Stadium and will finish there about 9 pm. They need to eat after the soccer games and will be in ref clothes because they can't get back to the hotel to change due to parades, plus it will be too late by the time they do that. Staying in the warehouse area for the...

We had a similar thread about 3 or 4 years ago that P-man started which turned into a fight similar to the current TJ threads so I decided not to resurrect it for updates, but rather to start anew.
Please limit to in New Orleans proper, not the left bank or...

Someone asked for pics from the gumbo dinner we hosted last night for 12 people. It was a dinner we donated to a fundraiser.

I caught the end of Anne Burrell's show when I was heating some soup for lunch. Saw her finished stuffed artichokes and olive oil cake, both of which looked good.
I've never had a stuffed artichoke that I've loved. I might not "get" them. The bread crumbs seem to be so much that they overpowe...
