[quote] I have to wonder how many times a year are they selling a $20K bottle of Screaming Eagle or Romanee-Conti[/quote] We sit on big bottles pretty much perpetually.

[quote]Can you share how you got the reservation?[/quote] I am the General Manager of a Dickie Brennan restaurant. Blessed that we have such a great relationship with the Thomas Keller brand.

The French Laundry - EMILIO on 8/9/17 at 9:07 am
Going to Napa at the end of next week and I have reservations for the wife and I at TFL. Can anyone shed some light on what to expect? Share any experiences? I know its a tasting menu and I also am aware that we will be spending some money (fine with that). Just wanting that meal to be a memorable o...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (11)

re: Joe Patti's Seafood must haves? - EMILIO on 6/3/16 at 11:31 pm
I'd go there for the fresh stuff though. The sushi bar is solid and the fresh fish kick ass. That's what I'd be dropping some money on. Frozen stuff is nothing to go looking for. I make at least one or two annual trips there. We usually head there on the first day of the beach trip, load up, and e...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: So Nola has a beer and oyster festival this wknd - EMILIO on 6/3/16 at 11:27 pm
Yeah it is. I think they are a relatively new fest so most of the prime fest times are already taken. The old school mentality of no raw oysters in the summer needs to go away though. Wildlife & Fisheries and the FDA are all over our oysters, constantly testing and regulating. As long at the restaur...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Foods for a 1-2 year old - EMILIO on 6/3/16 at 11:23 pm
I have a little Coonass baby (17 mos). I make her eggs and boudin every Saturday. She demolishes gumbo and jambalaya. She also kills any seafood that we cook. It's been great. Daily though, she eats some of what we eat at dinner time or we will make some simple stuff for her (grilled cheese or meat...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I know nothing about this Leap Day label. Can anyone shed some light? Also, I just got some Hancock Reserve and Rock Hill farms. Very excited bc I haven't seen them around or tasted them in years. I haven't opened them yet but I'm curious if you guys have any tasting notes..... ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
