re: Steak Presentation At Restaurants - Degas

re: Who has the best Non Cajun Sausage - Degas
I've fond childhood memories of a sausage shop when I was no more than seven or so. The sausage maker's name was Otto, straight from Germany, and he didn't speak a lick of English. His wife ran the counter and interacted with the customers. Various sausages were hanging about everywhere. My favorite...

re: Had Triple Tail for the first time - Degas
I agree. Tripletail is one of my favorite fish. Right up there with Cobia, Pompano, Speckled trout, Snapper and Sheapshead. I do miss lake fish in the North too. Perch, Crappies, Walleyes, Sunfish, Bass...yum. Smelting off the Lake Michigan piers was fun in the wee hours of the morning. I love those...

re: In Michigan...any local beers I should check out? - Degas
I haven't seen it here in LA since Bell's became available, but if you can find it, Bell's "Special Double Cream Stout" is the shite. It's seasonal and available this time of year. Pick some up, and make sure you pour the beer into a pint glass so that you can take in the color. You literally cannot ...

re: Favorite soups in BR? - Degas
It was a while back so I can't remember if it was a rumor or someone who had worked there who said there really isn't duck in the duck gumbo but rather chicken only. Anyone know if this is true? I've eaten it there many times and regardless, it's good....
