re: Tommy's Fish House new name? - liuyaming
Kenny, the chef for Tommy's, bought the restaurant from what I understand. I thought it was KC's grill from when I've called up there a few times. They're still getting some of the seafood from Tommy. Apparently, they have been focusing on promoting Louisiana seafood. Tommy's son used to post here. ...
