re: Turkey and the Wolf semifinalist for James Beard Best New Restaurant - BlackenedOut
Ive never waited more than say 3 minutes to put my order in and another 10 or so to start getting food. They have an efficient operation. I love the place and it almost feels like a breath of fresh air as opposed to so many new places which open on the national stage. Places where they are droni...

re: Not an empty seat at Billy Joel tonight - BlackenedOut
Great show. What upon reflection I find really awesome is he knows people want to hear the hits, and he plays them, but he has the awlf awareness that he was in New Orleans and added that touch throughout the show. ...

re: Good Quality Gin - BlackenedOut
Hendricks is very floral and a good entry level gin. I like it in a gin and tonic. Tnagueray and Bristow are my go to for a martini. Plymouth in other applications (Gimlets, Aviations, etc...) And then Pimms, which is a gin variant, another nice way to dip toe into Gin world. ...

re: Where would you rank New Orleans for dining in the U.S.? - BlackenedOut
You got me man, I have never left the 504. I'll try that and come back to comment. But why leave New Orleans when an Israeli restaurant in New Orleans won Best New American restaurant this year, there is killer Korean, amazing Vietnamese of all varieties, and a special yellow menu at Jungs? Not to m...

re: Where would you rank New Orleans for dining in the U.S.? - BlackenedOut
So are they all the best and therefore one should travel to nyc and only eat filipino food or is that result simply the result of SEO and Yelp? Again if your premise is to be a great dining town you need hundreds of different ethnic restaurants, than yes New Orleans loses out. But then so does Pa...

re: Where would you rank New Orleans for dining in the U.S.? - BlackenedOut
I love eating in New York. I think it is a tremendous culinary city. I have had amazing meals all over New York at all price points, save the high end where I have had bad meals at Marea, Daniel, and the now closed Colicchio and Sons. Doesnt mean i wont continue to try on my next trip to scratch say...

re: Where would you rank New Orleans for dining in the U.S.? - BlackenedOut
My original diversion was that having a diverse amount of ethnic foods, to me at least, isnt necessarily the marker of a great dining city. While it is certainlt a component, its not that heavily weighted. For instance, Paris has a great variety of ethnic restaurants, but is that an intrinsic re...

re: Where would you rank New Orleans for dining in the U.S.? - BlackenedOut
Im not even sure what this argument is about anymore. Is it what cities have most diverse food, best dining, best value? Who cares? Eating in New Orleans, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta, Houston, and a whole host of other American cities is much more enjoyable and better than it was sa...
