| Food and Drink Board|| Kanno Recommendations? - BrockLanders on 6/13/13 at 12:19 pm|
I've been to Kanno before, but the only thing I've tried beyond the basic stuff was the Elvis Roll, which was awesome.
This time I want to get nothing but the crazy, unusual stuff (preferably not with cooked fish). It can be a salad, fancy roll, whatever - doesn't matter...
| Food and Drink Board|| Easy, Tasty Potato Salad Recipe? - BrockLanders on 2/1/13 at 1:22 pm|
Having never made potato salad in my life, can someone out there please point me to an easy recipe that also tastes dandy?
Many thanks in advance!...

Gonna be having a birthday dinner at Commander's Palce pretty soon. Has anyone tried the "Chef's Playground" tasting menu in the last few years?
Is it enough food to feel stuffed (like it usually is at CP)? Was anything kind of ordinary or blah?
Any thoughts, recommendations...
| Food and Drink Board|| Houston People - Decent Place With Frozen Bellinis? - BrockLanders on 8/15/12 at 10:36 am|
I'll be in Houston this weekend, and I'm simply trying to find a decent casual place to eat that also serves a very good frozen Bellini.
If there's a place fairly close to downtown, that would be even better.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!...
| Food and Drink Board|| Some Deli Employees At Dorignac's Really Don't Like Rare Roast Beef... - BrockLanders on 7/9/12 at 11:16 am|
A few days ago, I went to get some of the rare roast beef that Dorignac's makes themselves. It's the best around to me.
So I asked the lady behind the counter if they had some. The only rare they had was the "Italian Style", which is usually smothered in garlic.
Well, what the...
| Food and Drink Board|| One Single Drink With Stella! Dessert Tasting - Which One? - BrockLanders on 6/1/12 at 12:17 pm|
Pretty soon, I'll be doing the dessert tasting only at Stella!, and I simply want to have one drink with it - but it cannot be wine or champagne (I don't like either of 'em).
Probably doesn't make sense to get anything sweet, since it will be a giant sugar rush.
So far, Irish...
| Food and Drink Board|| Leftover Duck Fat...How To Reuse It?? - BrockLanders on 4/10/12 at 11:00 am|
For Easter, we cooked some french fries in duck fat (very freaking good!).
I thought the stuff would be much more darker and murkier, but it was very clear - looked pretty much like cooking oil after it was used.
Any suggestions for using it to cook something else with...

A few nights ago, I was in Baton Rouge and grabbed a late dinner at The Chimes...
When we finished, we couldn't figure out why the waitress wasn't bringing our check...like 20 minutes had passed, and they never even took the plates off our table.
Finally, we were told, "We're...

| Food and Drink Board|| Horinoya - Long Review... - BrockLanders on 2/13/12 at 11:53 am|
Went to Horinoya on Saturday night for an early Valentine's Day dinner - I called the hostess in advance to see how parking would we with the parade nearby, and she wasn't exactly much help, and a bit on the gruff side - which is unusual for Japanese folks in my experience.
| Food and Drink Board|| Horinoya Parking Tonight With Parade... - BrockLanders on 2/11/12 at 12:24 pm|
Just noticed that the Pygmalion parade crosses over Poydras - and Horinoya is on Poydras about 2 blocks to the left of where it crosses.
Can anyone suggest the best place to park down there this evening?
Thanks in advance!...
| Food and Drink Board|| Something Low Cal To Go With Celery... - BrockLanders on 2/10/12 at 12:00 pm|
Can anyone suggest something low calorie that goes with celery? Like, for when you're eating pieces right off the stalk.
I know peanut butter isn't a good idea at all, but I'm coming up with very little beyond that...
| Food and Drink Board|| Horinoya Recommendations Needed... - BrockLanders on 2/2/12 at 3:35 pm|
Going to Horinoya for a Valentine's Day dinner (not going on Feb. 14th, of course)...
It would be nice to choose a bunch of cool stuff that you can't get anywhere else.
Open to pretty much anything except (maybe) the monkfish liver (sorry, Glass, I'm undecided).
Should we ...

Gonna be using a gift certificate to St. James, and I'd rather use it on something to eat instead of take-home cheese.
Anything to look out for? Charcuterie board? Sammiches?...

Does anyone know how long fresh shrimp can stay in a freezer?
I have a few pounds that were given to me, and I've been assured that they are from the Gulf and not off the coast of Tanzania.
A month or so? Maybe longer?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Gautreau's Review... - BrockLanders on 10/1/11 at 10:03 am|
Went to Gautreau's last night for the first time to celebrate someone's birthday.
Glassman was right - this place is incredibly loud and very small. So it's very quaint, but not romantic at all (if that makes sense).
For appetizers, I took the plunge and ordered the sweetbreads...

Is it really borderline orgasmic? Do you get enough to share it with another person? Or is it like one small breast with a...

Finally went to Le Foret to celebrate someone's birthday Sunday night, after wanting to try it for a long time.
If you like ultra-dark restaurants, this place is for you - we looked through the window on the front door and could barely tell it was open!
Don't know if it wa...

All of the housewives, cracker ladies, whatever else you want to call them - had outside bathrooms for the help, since they were under the impression that they carried diseases, filth, etc.

Went to Rue 127 on Saturday night for a 7:30 reservation to celebrate my mom's birthday with my sister.
We were at least seated on time. And the lady at the bar wished my mom a happy birthday. Other than that...I can't say there were any positives.
Our waitress was cold and...

Is this a common thing a lot of you folks experience when going out to eat?
Went to Le Crepe Nanou over the weekend, and they put our entrees on the table literally 10 seconds after we finished the appetizer...no idea why.
Even with dessert, I think the whole shebang lasted 55 minutes!...

I certainly don't have to eat crepes if their other offerings are the way to go. :cheers:...
