Thank you very much I just can't get it off my mind I don't know what it is today is the fiftieth anniversary. Of my junior Brahma and what a day at wise or what a night it wise and never forget that. And my wife thinks I'm nuts as a result of that but hey I could give her a lot of other reasons Howard our number is 260. 1870. And if you call right now you get right him. You know a last hours someone called and wanted to know about a steak house that was right across the street from a very close to. The place where Steve Stone breaker had his barbecue place for awhile and that didn't ring a bell with you but. People have written that's funny thing is they have to have its six of these. Three of the people say it was the western says Lynn and the other people say it was. The outback steak house so I don't know which ones I don't remember either one of them being air. Although I guess that she was just a couple of blocks over is it would they were on the outback was on some bird and I think. And his it's I think it's still there in fact. A well. 260187. He is our number call us talk to us about the way you've been eating lately any subject is open we we don't lose a you don't have to wait until somebody brings up what you wanna talk about for you to talk about it just go ahead anytime you want. Are always welcome here. And even if you have what you think is a silly question or stupid question even nor. Or even worse than that. I'm more and more eager as you go to get these calls because we have found over the years. That the calls that are that that the the people who make them think guards just the I'm the most the least interesting rule or those least. Appropriate wind up in the past calls we get so go ahead and call 260. 6368. If you wore looking for a mother state restaurant. On tied it again excuse me. All week long night a dual program Monday through Friday it's the same show basically we talk about nothing but food. But I give that phone number out so many times and have been doing it for so many years that he sometimes gets in the way. I should've said. Call us at 2601. Except that our real number we hear the other ones are unreal number I cast. If if you're looking for a place to go for Mother's Day. I have a list of a Mecca to tell you it's all of them because it's hard to to get this information you actually have to call all the restaurants and you hope the person that you get on the other end knows the answer is usually they don't. Or often they don't. But this is a pretty good list I think it has 77 restaurants that are going to be open for Mother's Day. Whether they're booked up or not that's another question you can answer except by calling them all of them every day so well I don't do that. But today I think you'll find the the list helpful because. It gives you a place at least a start in there are a lot of restaurants on there that I know do them seats available so it's Mother's Day. Here's somebody else who says it's it was the red onion and somebody else who says now it's the Weston says I wouldn't even want to tell the truth. And here is picky. Peggy welcome. Yeah. Out how we're talking about. While. We work well I am and one other guy but that's close enough. But any mail com. Myanmar has been compound bella to admit it to me and capping. Yeah and he makes omelets. So. We've all of you make the young Wayne they bring. Up all on a cop and I'll tell about it. And make charm wears well that's a great idea it is wonderful yeah so we know it then investigate delay and com. I'll bet he loves that decease he's a fun loving guy he was just a nice show about a month ago he says he's a really fun cunning guy his pizzas are great. Yes they are and we are out that we go up to and I'm quite open it doesn't matter what kind of be just. It makes it great now. Declined as that. All right well thank you very much I remember talking to chef once he puts us French chef and I said Wendy you what are you put in omelets in France. And he said we put three different things in it. Anything. Anything and anything. Well I guess that explains it and and over here is Whitman. I'd think it is. A chuck chuck welcome to the pooch. Paid and he had Marco thank you mom called from Pensacola. But often quite off them and very much or you. Are quite important and I'll put on spot but it parallel. I'm I'm usually on the spot so I'd go right ahead. While Moe Howard it. It is about who were off Pensacola news Houston probably about he's been ready cheaper generic term. I was just wondering if you're not any suggestions. Along that route. Along and I armed in normal land an oral. Between normal ones in the and I knew then or if he can give me the pointer or for certain I'll put my. This is no I don't hang up could. This is that it is an embarrassment of riches that you have to choose from I mean do you you have a strip of the nation that has more great restaurants and I guess any place but New Yorkers San Francisco. There's much to choose from. Let's see if that were me and how many where how many time today are we eating. Well probably. He eating at least launch and a. Lunch and a OK if that would be. And and we won't count new wallet is here read it so we do we move onto the next spot. And that would be enough in a restaurant in Lafayette and I don't know which one night but. One is some of the once it would be on my mind would be. The oh gosh commitment and it's and it's the it has to do with the blue dog it's right next door blew off. Restaurant. Can't think of the name. It's right in the middle write them a verb in youthful I'm sorry Kathy vermilion that's the that's. The yes that's the one I would go to there. And then I would try to hit some little place with a butcher shop attached so that they would have booed and sausages and things like that. And that got to be a million restaurants in Louisiana that serve that sullen way to start is a real good assessment Ian. In Lake Charles that's in the downtown part of and so you have to. Turn off the expressway in go into town. And once again because I never get out that far is I don't know the name I I if I were in my arms deal. If in my home studio like Italian music I just read my stuff but I've known him here. Yeah and then when I got to blow when I got to Houston I think I would go to. This does seem like strange suggestion but Brennan's in Houston. Is connected with the them on commander's palace arm of the bran into family. But it's totally it's totally different from. A brand NC in New Orleans it's also totally different from commander's palace in the one new one and it has its own style it's enhanced. Creole. Half. And southwestern. And it's a Puyallup. Beautiful restaurant and I've always loved going there and we go the way when we wind up in Houston we almost always go there for at least one. What are. Danced as a few of them anyway and sorry it couldn't tell you about it too much about lake tools at Lafayette but don't just keep arm. Ball no no and no I'm I'm I'm I I take money my my routing. Totally. I know. Now. Well you know I tell you what though since you brought up the question we will probably have numerous people call up and say hey I've got a place this guy in in lake trolls OK keep lists are Nolan. So why are. Well go well we'll get some that way. And I guess. It's the food show and now let's see who's overhears it's Antonio Antonio welcome to the food. They give thank you enough yet. All of that yes and the folded backwards on itself as well. Tomas yes. Kate and I guess mostly hear it from Laporte don't wrinkle and I'm looking for Porto Rico. We have anywhere zero. No no Porter Puerto Rican food anywhere in New Orleans that I know of on that would be nice to have I wish we had a little more. Food from the Caribbean but we really don't have any. No. I guess I have to open up one opinions and do what did you suggest the closest to process outdoor art. It would be. Ronald. We don't have any Cuban restaurants either. Name me a Q Cuban restaurant I mean I cant pick the ones we had a couple of them but they'll close. Unless I'm forgetting that might be one the real important when probably that still but I had its. Don't think so. And although we wait no way way up got one no I just thought. It's very close to. Lakes to clear view mall it's in Kingman street. And you are you keep hearing that when you get older you can't remember people's names I can't remember restaurants names. And I'm I'm having a blank on this when two. It's it's. I. Don't know there the day they specialize. In those what they call. No no no it's not candy it's it's it's like you're. That sure get short yet mature rose that's you know that's the name of the place half cafe children's. Got factual rules on you told teams. It's on king's men which is very and very close to the clear view mall. And those people are very Cuban and they are very nice people and they do great food. I'll try that the mosque at notre. Little drama house you'd tell me yeah but the house is the rub house's you know. That's a good place to go it's always jammed to the rafters in I think their food is pretty good but it's it's kind of an American take on and I think. All right via our great thanks what they are facing we're getting all these great calls from people who have been there. This is wonderful Corey welcome to the Puccio. Here it there and know their low. Right in the local church appeared that it he and in the trademark. And the new York and out late. Wait I don't understand what you're telling me say say it again. Oh it. I I'm and so. There. I don't know this isn't a show about. About dieting in medicine and all that that's nets beyond our purview. So I I and I. I really didn't care who I could eager lately there. Yeah I I'd that's that's something nice I know anything about it and and it's now wait yeah okay. Sorry about that I just you know I don't wanna make it seem like I know what I'm talking about when I clearly don't okay who is it's Joseph Joseph welcome. Thank you. You. I have a question a year ago back in sixty out board. It. Panel long days that there are. And it was made eagle. It was it may be. It was a real it may have been video. So I've been looking for a place. One mr. Make. Money they can. Make. It but it. They're. Expected to be spread. Make it. It kept exit the liquidity that they used that. Pops. Up and. I I don't know you can make panel when he was without cost. That that way dead that's. Probably a misnomer. I remind money the Basque Connell the intent on. Is I is at Vincent's either location is one balancing Charles avenue right off of Carrollton in this another win. I would in Metairie that's actually the original it's on right on. Just a transcontinental. I know exactly went out at me and area. I think there is is really good but you know. Maloney it means to candles. And that day and because they look like candles because there round and long. Right and and because of that. And it tells you nothing net about what is actually going to be in in them in the dish. But here is something that a lot of people don't know. If you want this done a certain way with certain things in certain things not in it tellem and they'll make it that. That's all you have to do. Know that this should get out there became. I'd baking indication. That. Played this year. It's. And it had to. The I don't robbery. Dictated to and they discovered Hitachi. Or small. And that the way today that it. Well that sounds like a pretty standard Catalonia to me. Iraq like you can watch it and it didn't. Is there and play it doesn't comment additionally. You're in. I was. Alley way where you say an open plea what do you want I mean it it sounds to me like every description you've given me an open place. All right I don't understand. Okay this the end that. It's. Appropriate age. Pop you in into the body six to eight inches long and very origin. Okay where they'll wait wait you said it was there was a blow on what he's it was a slight. A baking dish or something. Like it okay. All right. Well and that's that is what you want or it's not what you. OK well just ask him to do it that way it sounds more like lasagna and kennel and. Right well it was it was iconic development and I'll I'll I'll I'll. Well here is today. Just just tell them how you want it it you know now in the places super busy but when there and take. Why can't this in Heidelberg once did you do this for me. And and and they probably will show up Andrea I know would do it just as to take the challenge. So yeah to him about it and and deadlock. On YouTube. It's a food show on top it's more so program today is sponsored by. See here bistro Orleans. This Orleans has an oyster bar and oyster bar is not something that is easy to maintain in a restaurant first oval. You have to get a whole bunch of special permits in all kinds of stuff you have to track down where your oysters came from. And be able to tell that on any given moment you know the inspector comes in it's okay where these oysters from. You have to tell them exactly where. Where out there in the by you it came from and so this is a scent that's what you don't see oyster boys and every restaurant has soared to two. But they have undertaken over at bistro. Orleans and they have not just releases on the half shell which by the way are running for Italy nice right now being really delicious. So was they also do fried broiled. Grilled however you like you always UC to a that way and that's just the beginning of 00 what they can do with oysters in seafood in general they do a lot of it it's all nice and fresh. And it's all prepared to order with a huge variety of different ways you can go with it. It's bistro Orleans. They are on west esplanade outbound. Just off of causeway boulevard and there are open seven days a week lunch and dinner. At this New Orleans and will be back with more of the food show after first please this hello hello hello it's the food show what's in two minutes away we have a little loose break into and you know I have oh some catching up to do once some of the messages that have come and a lot of interest in stuff but in the meantime I'd Johnny's here John while. And it leveled it to your column was acting out like are you out all the place there. Great place. At a stop EO. Steve the originals. What is we can't and that it will be right here. Getting towards Tuesday. Atlanta and there it would. The day after Thanksgiving and they had some extravagant. And a blood in these. I'm not. Well I don't know about right I mean that part of the NC state instance a lot of catfish there. That's an admin. General and he probably does it make outstanding. As. Crumble when I am as a lot. Well yeah yeah it's a Greek restaurant but there on their food aid they do court Italian food there via. There on. Eggplant parmesan and I think is as good as any of ever had so maybe sol. But it. Can't alone he can be different two different people and now we got news thanks Colin will be back with more of the food show after we check in with CBS and find out what might be going on out there and will be right back stay tuned please thank you okay. Let's see people. What started this with set there was. A guy who called up and he said that he and his wife wanted to take a trip from Pensacola. To Houston. And make as many interest in food stops along the ways they possibly could sounds like a great plan to meet. But we got a lot of a lot of different stops. Here's one Sullivan's steakhouse in Baton Rouge effort it's good to change but now okay. And so is ruthless. Play you what you let that might might Adam by animosity much. On then someone also want to know about. Getting. Cuban food and and other cuisines from the Caribbean. And and all and they he was especially looking for. Some Puerto Rican food. Okay well as someone wrote and said that by a rule. Bistro on magazine street they do Caribbean food they do in fact most of their food is Caribbean but it's from the other end of the Caribbean it's. All over there. They're kind of food that they do is from Columbia Central America. And it's our northern South America. You really get a great taste of that expecting very very good at I've been there are numerous times. But to the places I mean and this place keeps it right up so they're called by a ruby are you. Compare look is upscale Caribbean sort yeah kind of an annoyed thinking that more of this. Cajun and southern west. Good Cuban arrest violent second street in Slidell okay did note that the here's what I just clean forgot about. Country flame. It's on. Tuberville street in the French Quarter near the Motley on hotel. It is despite the name it's on to a barbecue joint. But it really is a Cuban and Mexican restaurant and not bad at all and actually quite. And it's the one tells. I think that covers the point is that I have never seen any. We're at a Rican food anywhere you know RC it to I would wish that we could get it. If you ever get an opportunity to go travel there you'll really like it will remove a lot of home it even looks like the world's except for the fact that they have. Kills. Other than that no really no kidding the architecture is almost identical to our architecture here. I guess it was same bunch of Spanish colonizers did that. 2601870. We have stole god you know what time two to master here. Or program is sponsored in the meantime by care restaurant supply care restaurant supply. Is exactly what it claims to be it supplies all the things at restaurants need to operate. But it is also open to the public you don't need to do any special ranging to to make that happen you can just walk in there they have a show room. But the care family which has been in this business for three generations they'll answer any questions you might have. And you know it keeps coming to my mind that with the wedding season not far ahead of us here it's in June of course. This might be a great time too late in. So my gift purchasing at a time by going over to care. Because. You know most of the cookware that you find in. In non department stores in big block stores in big big squares with the vehicle's big box yeah big bucks or. They are made for their looks. But no chef ever buys. Anything that way and if you wanna cook. To the best of your ability buying the equipment that the shots of the really good nights of really good cutting boards.

He gives out roses to all of the mothers and that would include more than one at your table if you. On have a wife and the mother the same time imagine that. But. Also. There is his enormous menu and whenever you as a special event you would think okay to slow things down here to make it easier to serve people. The menu would shrink it gets bigger I don't understand why that happened but it's a good price it's right around 45 dollars I think for the three course dinner for a your mother. And and everybody else at the table to Andre is is right across causeway boulevard from lakeside mall they are open seven days a week their phone number for reservation.

Well are you talk about the difference between. Let's say Kosher. Salt or regular. That capped well immaculate Geiger count. I evil. You'll say operator acutely. Onions the sea salt I'm I'm for if you're talking by a little sprinkle on top of the dish at the end of the preparation. But whenever I read. A recipe from a TV ship or something like that they say okay we're making a gallon of stock. Use one half teaspoon. Special French. On assault from the from the salt flats and and I just think it's ridiculous nobody's going to be a bullet takes that nobody in the world can taste that. And it doesn't make it that much difference. The regular salt in them in the round of containers that we all know that's the that's the purest solve that has ever been made. So but if you want the action takes you take it but I don't I have one cut assault that.
