Perry call expect Bob welcome to the food show. -- -- are going to play that haven't been through many many it is. And not the -- long break is in good shape and get it going back the mosque -- is still -- good. It's exactly the same the only thing that's changed is that the prices have gone. Or will they still require cash only. On Saturday I don't think they take reservations. But it's packed house all the time -- pretty good business. And the that and you still lose the short little list that they've always done oysters and shrimp and the Trent Moscow two different -- by a totally different and India and it did -- Yeah it's just what they have always done here is you view all the garlic that you always wanted but nobody else would give. And so yeah the chicken with the garlic and you get the they have real good Italian sausage making in house. Full. But -- just about run to the end of that and you this spaghetti and meatballs and now were really out all right but it's but. You you get big platters of everything. And remember that -- order because. And then listen to what the waitress tells you which he says that's too much food she really means. And and the start off with a crab -- that I toss with greens in Jerusalem. It's primal place just wrote a new review from -- two days ago. Been in many many years in. Now. Especially -- out very yeah well it's normal appreciate that. All right thank you see. The food show continues the we may have found Harry again will. There aren't artery you don't please it is. OK okay. -- garbage you -- restaurant had been so lottery -- lovers. -- -- Okay are you talking about sold -- -- Salute salute -- the Italian expression that moralist. Translates into Delhi beats. Not exactly but close up. Actually this is a -- hot thing for restaurants that -- these days and a lot of restaurants are doing it. I would say the two best places are bill Monaco. Once in Charles avenue and morals don't Monaco. They do all in -- every bit of that they cure their own -- they smoke it if necessary most of them are not. But. It's just great. And the other one. Is Goldman. It's in the Roosevelt hotel it's on the wrong side street side of the -- Roosevelt that's John sessions Italian restaurant. Not only do they cure. And season and new age all of those meets over there they actually raised their own eggs. Really really do yeah they race among the North Shore. -- -- that needs to be exact. And and they do you know the per shoot -- they do call quietly do it's. That's what they do have salon commitment to the and Cyprus -- -- at and all of those good news things you can make a mile but if you want but I think of the two best ones. -- Roosevelt hotel and it at a restaurant. Dominica. Itself in Italian word for Sunday there are open seven days a week they have an interesting deal in the afternoon from three to six. Half price drinks. Wine. And cocktails. And half price heats up there it's a great pizza place but the menu goes. He's very strong in other ways. Thank you -- This is the gates -- WWL -- -- today by Koreans support boys.

Orange. Koreans. Comes down -- The nickel rose before boy that is done in the old way. Now a lot of things done in the new way are better because we better meet system to fool with we have practices we better shifts. -- in some cases. The the original was so good. That anything you do to them at all much you wanna make it better actually winds making it worse. And in the case. Of rules before. Which really hit the -- is buying good quality meat but does have the the rich you would you be fooled to make. -- -- before boy yeah hopefully -- for example even -- Tuesday. But they use that. In -- ground. Over the years Koreans they roast it in house. Everyday. And lots. And the -- on the degree via the natural -- so that fruit juices. Come out of the beef -- And it's all home the whole thing. Or are they -- -- shocking number of restaurants. That not only to the net cook at themselves even slice it themselves becomes an already -- this is now. At Rand or what -- do with the right way the way they were doing it when or where it was invented back in the 1920s that's how they -- back then that's helped -- that. And they -- the other four boys you can imagine and really almost ridiculously. Large menu of all sorts of the stuff that you would like to have accurate and neighborhood. That's that's when. Even though it's on veterans in the strip mall in veterans the veterans twice. To be redundant. I say I don't like to be redundant -- -- -- 3939 veterans. Just -- Cleary. Open every day except Sunday for lunch and on Wednesday through Saturday squeeze you until 8 o'clock. Early. In sport. We will come back with more of the cultural moment. But first please that's do do do do do do on but he hello it's the food. On the big 870 WWL. One point three FM. That it be here with you talking about food. Where everybody go anywhere if you call right now you get right -- we talk review by whatever it is you've been eating whatever you're trying eat. Whenever you're trying to cook at home whenever 2606368. All over on says they are doing again. 2601. Eats at you know what it is capable of Reading the book right now. A ball all your brain works its lord knows they need some help with that. And it seems that if you were under any kind of stress. The things you do kind of automatically without thinking. Much about him tend to get much deteriorated. And that's where I had the worst week you don't want to know but this it mainly involves. A computer. Hardware problem. And it's. It just drove me nuts this week. So that's why I'm giving the wrong phone number 260. 187 that's the real phone number now that -- too if I may explain. Is the phone number for the show that I do the rest of the week Monday through Friday. And you're doing the same thing we do food everyday. And that number is the one night mistakenly give often presents are running on auto pilot but the auto pilot today. Would have his license revoked frankly. That way it's going to six so. And there's a bunch of people bring in but we we're gonna get one of these -- here we go we got one. Alive when it's Kaplan is that right. Yes -- -- -- walk into the food show I have -- -- -- started brightly from modern -- -- recommendation. I do that you've never been there before -- in my purse out of foliage Kindle or. All okay good she's them at least she's been there before right I don't think it's a good idea to take -- one to a restaurant unit that -- but I think we've got to. This is a restaurant that really does rewrite its entire menu every night. And they always have they were certain things that they have all the time though they have this thing called a seafood platter it's not the seafood platter you know. It's. But usually for sometimes more than that. Small. Mini creations it's almost like for appetizers and one plate all involving seafood and some of Lamar some of them won on this cold. And one of them stuck in this way and the other one's done that way nothing on it is -- And it that is it -- delicious meal night after night after night no matter -- -- yeah that in the salad horrible assume you're in business. Odds of the duck is famous the roast duck. Anything involving -- at the pollinate rabbit or they do these little money not funny but grilled. Rabbit tenderloin with -- little creole mustard. They have a unique approach to shrimp -- -- there they serve it on talk on top of guacamole. All you need is one bite of that to realize that this is something that somebody should of -- -- a long time. It's really good. And I also have a weakness. For the the -- -- of the day it's something different every day but it all -- says this sort of old fashioned quality to it that I buying interest because not many restaurants cook that kind of stuff anymore. And I always enjoy them when it right here. So this is a very good restaurant it may be the best of the little -- and restaurants around town. Well good thanks for calling and asking about it. It's the -- and and frank writes and by the way has a child it's the address distressed and here is married -- welcome to the food show. Campaign -- odds are it's unique take a look at this guy and go out there. There. I wanted to recommendations. 4 restaurants owns Sunday evening. Okay. What part of -- you want to be and and what you have in mind. Consider me. Mueller literally any extension look at look at for victory at home and get atmosphere okay. That's a given but they give me give me some kind of indication of what you're looking -- -- you know what I'm what what kind of food you want what price you were looking for what neighborhood you'd like how casual you wanna be. -- It it doesn't see real casual but not not real -- And the scores. -- -- In doing -- to say about. Did you know that the. A home. Okay. To give me just any kind of feeling for what kind of food you're thinking. So. Well our commander talents as you can. That's that's good that's that's that's a good lead Sunday night you know -- I think I would go is. I would go to mister b.'s. It's easy to get to it's on the corner of -- -- -- and royal in the French Quarter but they have a free parking well it's not free anymore it used to be. For you now it's I think three dollars. It's right around back at the restaurant in effect you don't even have to go -- on the street if you don't want to you can visit the passageway at least right from the parking garage directly into the -- And this place does the best in town of a whole bunch of good New Orleans issues grilled fish over what -- -- fire by the way. Which is not common. Their crab cakes I think of the best in town they're chicken and do we gumbo is the best in talent. The barbecue shrimp for the best and and it's a fun place it's easy going they have a piano player most of the time. Great drinks doubles usually almost always in fact. That's where -- As I say the you can -- right into the parking garage directly behind the restaurant and walked directly from the parking garage into the rest. It's on -- on the brutal street side. He's you know the fine. All right thank you see it's the food show on the boards. And here. Is -- Very well. How I think there -- -- thank you. But yeah I don't think Jack and port. At ground.

They're definitely open. Yet it's on magazine street. Corner of Octavia which is a block away from Jefferson -- tonight it's a nice little area there of apology shops and coffee houses in the -- a block away from the whole food. And I -- Its French but with a New Orleans touch to it. And it's a charming little restaurant not a big restaurant it's news nice little place. Good -- better service and better food that you and then you can expect. Given what looks like from the outside which is not bad it's just looks. Accuser actually arrest and in there oh my god there is hit. It. It's like as sneaky it's it's off the side street just a little it's not not strange about it them. But yeah. It's it's quite good they have. My favorite -- -- is is caught of that which is classical French dish it's basically have to chip in -- down in -- -- the peak in -- and some onions and stuff. Just of one dish of a lot of good seafood they do good stakes that he have you could make a meal of appetizers -- your very own -- So. Let's that was that's the first place comes in my mind.

It was way out of proportion to what they were expecting by you know that's. That's what we need.
