And it is you'd in kind of deepest darkness. -- It was awhile it opened in 1982 I remember what it did and it has been going on ever since it's had a few changes of ownership but not really ever change in direction it's always been -- the brick thick restaurant. And to me it's always. Right on the verge of being a five star. I've I've never pushed it over the edge quite yet but I I think if you told me you thought it was a five story wouldn't argue with -- it's it's consistently great for a long long. And she really goes -- -- out -- right. All yeah well you know the all the main thing you need to know about halibut -- way to get it because this is not something.

Greatly be really knows what she's doing. But that is just terrific that that fish is wonderful and I've never seen anybody -- better. It. Coach rose GA UC RE PAU. -- you must have a reservation to go there it's very popular and very good. And once she'd get there. You could actually walked directly in front of the restaurant and not.

All right so that's a good one to pick for that. -- At. An. All out war. -- -- -- -- Are they changing the name of the one on magazine street. And -- goodies okay. My thought is going to be that kind of harassment. Would. Our mind. -- have. And be -- -- the like -- a little bit. Well I mean -- news abilities has always been well certainly in the neighborhood in and there is a lot in common between that part of magazine street and in the -- they are the same kind of lives sort. All local local. -- -- -- -- You very much for telling me -- It's the food show you see the deal is in case you're wondering what that's all about. The restaurant that has been known for a long long time as. -- in the each 24 hour restaurant for a long time. In the Marty closed due to a 34 months ago. And it turns out that the people who won't slim goodies are taking it over and I imagine that -- gonna turn in into -- into a neighborhood restaurant although who knows and who really cares until they've been open a little while and you go after the problems at the beginning which affect every rest. Work -- Leo some people don't mind that I do. So I don't know bill welcome to the food show. Thank you thank you. -- looked -- it was a program recently aired it was my first see it may have been a few times on media. About that you -- restaurant and -- -- history Antoine and got applause and so on. And you you you were one of the -- on the program. And at some commune -- it was a very mixed race is different restaurants. It better and it buried buried in their scrutiny music center. That's actually see if you were not that the man in narrator. Overall pick the the overall program if you only will be meeting notes the unrest on the new law -- Well. Two things first -- -- They've Peggy -- board who is a producer at channel twelve and and also a very good friend of mine going back to college days. She has a series of these them the first of which was called the lost restaurants in New Orleans. That is. Was made like ten or twelve years ago and they are still showing it all the time over there every time it comes on people call me or hear from -- -- -- friends detail I saw you on TV again last night -- did you. Managed to take ten years off your agents it's the miracle -- videotape what that is. But this one you're talking about feel old line. Grand down restaurants in the French Quarter and to tell you the truth have never seen. I don't I don't like the way I look on TV that's why am on radio. I don't know if they -- radio. If people tell me that all the time and Peggy is just nothing but a good producer -- and she's a real New Orleans person she is she digs New Orleans like it's almost impossible today. Well enjoy additionally immensely I don't wanna look. I appreciate. A teller C it's the food show you see the problem -- not that I am ignoring it on purpose or anything I just never watched now. I really don't and I it's a shame you're telling me why is that a shame what am I missing until. Television is very enlightening. Dave says. All right. Our program is sponsored today by Paul Ryan's horrible ways. Not a lot of things you can get a brand for boys starting with four boys against. And without a doubt the number one item on their menu is that slow long cooked and they do -- it from scratch roast beef pork boy with a homemade gravy and local French bread and the whole thing. It's always been a great -- and the fact that they sell so many of them I think speaks volumes on that subject so let's move on to something else. And not speak volumes would speak paragraphs perhaps. I have always been a fan of the Italian -- boy idea. And it seems to be catching on little by little -- you make when those. You slice of some meatballs. And you slice up some Italian sausage. And you put some red sauce and they stick when that's cook for a long time. On some of French bread and then you put the meat balls in the sausage on top of that and then you put some mozzarella cheese or some trouble on if you prefer or whatever you like on top of that. And then he puts more red sauce on the other side of the French written -- U married all of together and you stick the whole thing in the oven until the blue cheese stores bubbling up the sides. And then you eat it and then you love and I love it and it's there all the time. And if you'd rather not get a sandwich and expand upon the theme. They have Italian plate specials every day to. All of this is -- a -- for -- 3939 veterans highway just as clear view they are open until about 8830 tonight. Closed tomorrow and Sunday but Lou but weekdays for lunch every day Wednesday through Saturday for dinner at -- four points. Welcome back -- more the food -- in a moment now would be a perfect time for you to call in because you'll be first when we get back from -- this. About another up and up and upbeat but I'll put up a low it's the food show it's thirteen fifty. 30. Cool see I'm I'm sorry. Sometimes my brain does -- a goes on. Auto pilot and I don't even realize it. That's the station I'm on all week along.

Where I'm pleased to be every Saturday that there's room for me. 2601872601. Point 70 call right now you get right Ian. And would also have to add only a few going to the oyster festival. On today or tomorrow it's going until 7 o'clock tonight. And all day tomorrow starting at 1030. Here's what happens most of the scene. Works kind of like the French Quarter festival in that the admission is zero it's free you can show up listen to music. They have continuous bans all day long. And you listen to music and hang out and play on the two on. -- Oldenburg park right there are on the riverfront. And enjoy yourself and you just pay for the food as you get food drink there is lots more than oysters here they they I'd say only about 5060%. Of the dishes are oysters but that leaves a lot of other things. Including things that kids will like. This even the snowball stand and before you say. Oysters snowballs no no no no regulars Noble's. I have put together a list of all the food that can be found at the French -- and at the at the oyster festival today and tomorrow. And I even firm almost all of them -- of the places I haven't been too. I gave the -- one to three star ratings on them. So you can if you want to take a look at it and see what might be best is no way you can do you at all so we -- A little bit of information is better than none I guess. But that's all at no menu dot com that's my personal website and no. W -- And though and the and you dot com. No menu there's no. And the very first article on the -- so you don't even have to click configure. 260187. Me here it is job John welcome. Page on how -- -- the wind -- One dimension nuclear north sort it. -- It called on him but eatery. That it's an interesting idea. The owners of -- have decided. That it's going to be a nonprofit. Operation and that any excess money that they bring in they're gonna give to a different charity each month. And the first thing I thought of was something that Ella Brennan told me years ago which which was that it takes three years the breakeven and a restaurant five years to start making money. And ten years to know what you're doing. It and Seoul. I hope it's not five years before they -- giving things to charities in maverick facing very earnest about it I have no doubt that it's. Totally on the level and very. Very admirable thing for them to do. Yeah and -- all about that all about while -- -- you know or that oil out there we make everything bigger. Had there been due -- have been there based on armor and -- -- -- the best book ever that we. -- -- -- -- -- I have not been myself yet it just opened I mean it's so it has been opened more than about three months.

Injured you know and and and -- so we feel we started to achieve greater. Angering. Sound kind of goofy. Well. Particularly at. One of the one of the most memorable moments on this program about twenty years ago was when and a a guy gave me a recipe. In which you put a whole pound of -- dog in to a food processor puree and then spirited to a pot pot red beans and rice and he says it comes just like -- -- and believe it.
