And I haven't talked to anybody haven't been myself of course it's much too soon to go to a brand new restaurant that they had a soft opening yesterday. And that the people who owned it have bought the building to that's what I heard and but they are the people who run the VIP. -- -- further -- Jefferson highway and that's always been a pretty good place so these are real professionals and business. There is going to be completely different menu from what frank writes and was doing there he's not involved that all -- totally out of it.

And please if you would have eaten anything good in your entire life so -- -- Especially if it's been kind of lately in the it's probably still clear whatever it is that you love so much. Were always on the search for a new things. Speaking of you know and this morning and also last weekend. I do a lot of work on my website on the weekends. But I was updating. How we're list of all opened restaurants like maintain what I believe is to the best list the most all in. Game and including list. Of restaurants in the city. And when I got to adding all the ones that I knew had opened gleefully. IPhone that I had thirteen 191. Of them. This is an increase of almost forty restaurants just in the last three months. Or so believable. We and we only had sixty new restaurants -- well it's the only but that's not bad actually sixty new restaurants in all of 2013 here -- -- were not out of January yet. And this list is gone up to thirteen 191 and so we're going to be at 14100 pretty soon we had 809 before Katrina. Think about that. 2606368260. Menu. -- if you wanna look at this list because it has a phone numbers ratings. Addresses everything you need to know I have been arranged by by yeah style of food I have a range by neighborhood. Or Ana have also just -- alphabetical list it's all know menu dot com and then you just click on restaurants and they are all the information it. And here is Bob Bob welcome. Bob -- here stay you're. OK I don't have that -- -- commitment wrote stock. Yeah and I want to thank my parents out -- anniversary in my but they had little duck or goose and. I'm looking for -- Peking duck. Peking -- that's a little harder to come by. It do you know if they like that tradition particular. Okay but this the best places for Peking duck I believe are the five happiness and I would call a day ahead of me even two days ahead. They've always been a beautiful job with that I think also the cafe east. How in the Metairie are right it's right across from clear if you ball right. They think it was something I've never seen anywhere else typically when you get a Peking duck that they bring -- the -- they show you the whole roasted -- that they just finished doing. And then they bring in the back in the -- -- it up and they take all the skin and they put it in a pile over here than they take all the meat they put in in a pile over here. But most of that is coming off the breast and they still an -- a fairly good bit of duck meat left so they take the backbone and all that stuff. And they stripped of the ball them the the left over duck meat and then make a stir fry dish out of -- -- mushrooms and stuff on the side. And that's pretty darn good. It it's enough for two people. And go or did it will be appetizers before I like getting it is an appetizer at the beginning of the meal and then moving moment. -- I had five happiness how to date. How did they serve it. They do it in that over the way that just about everybody else does it up to the point where. They carve off the skin and then they have the meat and then they bring it out on a big big platter and you you you just. Pick up the pieces. And excuse me a duck. And you rap on them what they call pancakes they're not. Would you not know. About it and I'm looking for it -- itself. None of -- you don't understand this is the classic way this is served. You're right at all it's it's a it's a very very thin. In little. Rapper is more ball like what it is -- opinion -- And you put the duck pieces in the -- this -- sauce that you sprint in the -- and you sprinkle some green onions and you roll it up and eat it felt like the eve of a read. And that's a very elegant classic. Dish from the Mandarin. Cuisine in China. Very famous. But. There are there a lot of other good duck the issues around well. That's delicious I would put that up against almost anything. It's that they give you a half a -- And they've they've -- it. They rotisserie roasted first. And then when somebody orders that. They flash fry it we do like it like a few seconds in very hot oil -- you wouldn't even know that they do that unless you watch them yeah. And then they have a couple of different sauces and a lot of going to issues that is it delicious dish it's a great price. And very very -- to concede you have all these side issues that corn grits in the green -- in our world. All right how many how many years is this. And years yeah how long they've been married. Or 71 years. One well that's great. For them tell -- said happy anniversary. I've certainly will and -- -- on that I have one more question. Yeah which can't remember what it is. Thought about it I'm -- put you on hold. And I'll come back to you if you remember. In the meantime while we're waiting. Mark. I'm sorry Mary and I could see that quite Marion. Well -- do it Q -- have quite -- about salad dressing. But it -- Atlanta at Connecticut's ballot. Oil. It. At my house we use extra virgin olive. But aren't you don't have to you could use whether -- like. Okay we'll have a problem wouldn't it make this ballot. And I think -- ballot with the artichoke hearts that they buy back. End. It's become who did. Chris -- is -- not put too much. Oh wait he did you mean you're putting the dress you putting all the artichokes and everything else in the dressing. In this out. Derek -- the Ohio editor. Edit it will fit. So what can I do it. How long is it sitting between that. Doesn't like right away. Well what I would do I would ever make a vinaigrette. I always I I just me it instead of doing -- at the table because it doesn't quite well and right. Well here's just a quick recipe for. Who might be the best thing for making salad dressings you know those good seasons. Things where they -- You can get. The -- crew with the little bottle and has a snap up on. You know what I'm talking about it comes with these salad dressings that come in an envelope. Good seasons as the brand name and they were I I don't like the envelope stuff but I do like the shaker. -- -- But oh orca actually what late lately because I broke all of them I've been using old olive oil all bottles that were. You you put in but a tablespoon. Of mustard. Any kind of mustard you like from yellow mustard to what I uses creole mustard here. And then you then you put in a pot of fourth of a cop. Of vinegar. Some good kind of vinegar red wine vinegar balls sonic vinegar would -- like I would use just plain old white vinegar wife you know cider vinegar is good. And then you add a while a fourth of a cup of water. And then you then you come back -- about three fourths of a cup of oil whatever kind of oil you. And you have this all in this shaker and you screwed the cap on. And you shake it like crazy or you can put it in the bowl in whiskey with a wire -- or even use. A beater. And until everything will kind of blend together it'll fall apart later in the refrigerator. But you can always shake it again and get it going. And then -- puts on this on the dressing and toss the dressing with the salad. And do the olive oil will protect. The greens from being. Wiped out by the vinegar as anchor is very -- you know vinegar can you can -- things in vinegar. Attitude and soul of. That it. Will. -- You got that that's who that would be my first guess not having been there and watch you do an -- -- for sure but my guess is that that's it that's would sounds like -- -- So you really should put that -- that like last. No just me. Either in the and you just use and then pour it over idea. Over the salad and then take a couple of forks just toss it around in the bull and the -- of the -- right away. Yeah trust god that I -- -- -- Water agree. No no you don't need to work like you know usually shake it off pretty well they aren't there but no I don't think so you need a little water in a salad dressing anyway. It makes it taste that strangely. It's okay. But -- -- about it it would. A little mustard you will find it is all every French chef. That they Stew will their basic vinaigrette salad dressing it's starts with a about a tablespoon mustard and in the fourth of 54 of a cup. Of vinegar fourth of a cup of water and then three fourths of a cup of olive oil that's that's the basic thing they could always had other things too. In -- thank you so yeah. -- if this guy though that is a question. Rob I mean yeah Bob said yeah did you think of it. Yet but it it's uncle Bob and you get little club quality work before. But you have to outnumbered that day. Now man. Don't you only do that on the other station that's all kinds of federal rules of. 10 Mort you know what I'm one of the -- the. You -- if he called me and I'll I'll get you in about thirty seconds. -- Thank you that's it well I was. 2606368260. They added 260187. Mean you need to break he probably due to. Let's do it will come back but more the food show it -- first please this. Good they don't own bed and I don't. And low low low it's the food show on the brigades have any WWL -- WWO 15 point three FM this is home to more it's great to be here with you talking about food restaurants and stuff. 2606360260187. I'm sorry keep doing that I can't help it it's it's my brain is on auto pilot a lot of that is the number for the show that I do all wrote all the rest of the week same time noon until three. But on a different station on thirteen fifty. Three WL is what we call that thirteen fifty come on over listen we've -- -- buddies. We have a program in the mornings. Called the double coverage with the Bobby de Beers on T Bob. And and who's in America. Kristian -- and I don't. Anyway that's on. Weekdays 6 in the morning till 9 in the morning. Double coverage and then I'm on noon to three with food show and then -- comes on three to six with this bunch. Which is inevitable 260. 187. -- a program is sponsored by and ones and I don't know if you heard the bad news. A lot of people have told me that they've gone and once they've ordered. At lunchtime that lunch special that they do consisting of three courses. I'm with three choices in each of the courses too so there's a lot of variety here pretty pretty good -- menu. Three courses 33. Choices in each U cores. For twenty dollars and thirteen cents is in the price. Well a good thing can't last forever in the price has gone up. Starting a few weeks ago it became twenty dollars and fourteen cents. And here and they also changed the contents of it just so you wouldn't get bored it. Char -- oyster used to start off with though with the garlic -- and olive oil sauce and little Romano cheese or their lunch salad which is lettuce strawberries in -- carrots and cranberries and walnuts. And feta cheese and a strawberry vinaigrette that's quite a salad. Or shrimp this that's something we've always done this is old styles creole shrimp gets dark -- not cream. -- -- Beautiful beautiful pitch. The entrees a stuffed pork tenderloin when -- stuff with your loan business. Undo. Right up the middle. Of the pork and that's a great idea. With a champagne reductions saws or drum fish Saint Louis that of oil drum fish they serve a dog. Peas and corn top with the cardinals thoughts that it -- -- saucy -- usually use them crawfish. Or chicken Florentine breaded chicken breast. Over the Florentine right school spinach in it and any sauce than for dessert pecan bread putting Antawn style cheesecake -- blueberry sauce. Or them are running glossy which is really an unusual dessert there's this little ring of a ring this debate very slowly it's hard like a cookie. Anyway all this is that once it's all of twenty dollars and fourteen cents and wait there's still another good deal on this lunch. The specialty cocktail of the day. Is a quarter. And yes you can have more than one. But please drink responsibly. This is it -- 1713. Saint Louis street the French Quarter. If you've never been you're talking here about the oldest restaurant in America. Right here in New Orleans since 1840. And of restaurant that has invented a lot of dishes that had been picked up by restaurants around the world most notably oysters Rockefeller but there are others. In all the world there is only one -- ones. 260. 1870. And here is Clayton Clayton welcome. Thank you to say that -- what two in an orange and increases think Hebrew. -- You know the on it is an Italian -- for the first country goes there -- sort of meat balls to get where which we have people. And should decide what goes bad back here. So my question being -- Where is that this these posts beauty of it. I don't know I think meatballs and spaghetti is a ridiculous that shoots for kids. Yeah. It's a serious. First of -- but here's some amazing. If you if you go to Italy. You know you'll never see that this served anywhere except in restaurants that are catering to American tourists if they if it's a restaurant. That is really going after American tourists you'll see spaghetti and meatballs on on the on the menu. If you go to any other restaurant. You will Nazi. That's that's that's that's unbelievable. -- Are probably. Election. If I sit down and have a good meal and -- -- out happy that's a good restaurant if I don't walk out happy. It's a bed -- it's very simple. This no magic formula. This no you can't judge I I talk to people who tell me things like. I remember this one guy used to work for. Years ago he used to run the radio station I was on he told me that his measure of a good restaurant is if you walk in and the border. Was nice and soft so you can spread it on the -- That's where it doesn't take much to please you again muted as art and to let the. You know -- -- -- -- to. You god that's the consulate. Is that you know what markedly off elbow. But we don't we go to something or to pressure there or amber. You know or I don't -- my my wife and daughter still do that. My daughter's 21 and by what why can't tell you how -- by my office. But. But but these. Yet -- hamburgers and taking over the world again amid the see who we thought that there were as many hamburgers is that could possibly be in the world but now they keep coming just this week drive goes opened a hamburger. That's. For it well. Well they it's right next door to me -- pretty much so it's not that -- Well don't we have enough Amber's. What. We numbers will mean new account the good ones immediately. Closed out even if you count only the good ones we. What seems to me to be ridiculous number number please. Where -- Stretched out. -- run in the world. But it appears to show. When he let our group. Right there you go all right thank you. It's the food show him going to them before too we where's Margaret Margaret Margaret you there. Margaret -- -- I I can hear you just fine England has to wait wait wait wait. Wait wait wait wait wait wait wait hang on just the second.

Hamburger places around a war okay now that I've done that welcome to our show. And a -- and calling it. And I think you know. And make it that hard pan am common -- anything at this point my television news on the bank. -- I've read and -- out to you again you. I wanted to let you know that I know I love you. I mentioned at rest and civic Yemen and came -- that calling him out because my son and a it fits them. -- And I -- playing -- you've been an thank you take that in any -- nickname and ten. And -- -- -- you know. On he's a terrific chef feet aren't right handed and men that honor I'll know he couldn't tell you that he but. -- no bad but the thing and it is back and I I'd -- why did he what you thought about it. His food is terrific it's ask -- good the best fried chicken around. Those oyster dishes he does -- really good the that eight -- thing with the crawfish sought at in the patsy and Griffey finished. -- a good food place. I have I have yet it's great good good quality local catfish. Well -- -- Pakistan -- -- now I'm going to be on and and that. Paul really -- and Mandela went and go to. You realize that I don't want I don't wanna hear anymore about this okay we'll look thank you thank you very much nicer and William a moving along who's running at times like here's here's JoAnne. Mary is next -- It. Come on him. Yes hi -- and welcome to our show. -- into have you called did you call to go on the year with a radio show it -- okay we're here we are we on here you are and I am then let's go. What I wanna know it had to make rash stress and. Rice dressing there must be. A thousand different ways to make right stressing what you have in. The one that has the give let's send it from a month earlier chicken -- and have a. We'll save all your -- blitz except for I don't know but the heart to a lot of people like Turkey courts in chicken hearts to kind of tough to beat but Glenn put him in their if you want to. Put a little bit olive oil in a skillet. And put -- chop up some a little bit onion I might even use green -- that rather than wait. And a little bit of or Reagan though. And some creole seasoning. Do all this to your personal taste and just cooked on everything in the and and I think at chop up but let's stick parsley and not parsley. -- Included in the -- -- just go down. And a little list issue is awesome cook at it with although in -- -- the -- to within you let it cooked until everything gets nice and tender. And you in the meantime you're steaming your rice over here. And you take the two things you put them together and it's awesome round with a couple forks and and that's and then you know if you wanna add some a little more salt a little more peppering you you can do that. But that's it's one of these things that he could basically play within -- you get it right. OK let's. All right that was what I was trying to find that is what you food and it -- how to do it because I've never made it before. But I batted it to Christmas. And apple it's everything open it -- Salaries so well that wouldn't be that would be my idea you can. All of the things that you would get out of -- that you would get by just cooking the meats and everything else in the -- with some vegetables and little bit of water in a little -- a red wine where you know is all kinds of different ways you can do it like -- say this must be a thousand ways to do that. Well look thank you very much good luck with that and we will come back with more in a moment but first please.
