This is the hey waiter I can't read this menu in the dark voice of your local announcer. -- -- Morris and this is the big 87 WWL. And WWL 105 point three FM. As well as WWL. FM HD one. Which is probably the best audio you can possibly get. You don't even need a computer that you need to run out of your HD radio if you've got one I'd get one of fire where you have three room. This sound is unbelievable I mean even if you have a little because it's it's really so. Well anyway here we are it's time now for the food show with this is that wonderful time of year for us when we are not interrupted hardly at all. For about two months. No sports. This time of year -- anything that we carry anyway. The rest of the year we're going to bump all over the place by various sports matches and sometimes and don't even show up at all. On Saturdays at this time a year it's great -- new until three beautiful three hour program. And then we'll go on until the saints start playing so well there you go hope you can call us and make our acquaintance. By our I mean me. And my my fountain pen here and it really is a phone and and they'll also that guy sitting over there in the in the what's that little bit that sort antique looking suvs that -- -- I can't remember the name when it looks like it's from the 1940s. That guy. And that this is three of us and then we would like to bring you into the conversation who's 0260187. Use the telephone number. And if you have anything to say about food and anyway I'm making this is general as I possibly. I would love to hear whether Europe you wanna bring up something really silly like. When's the last time you have a Mary Jean. You know that little peanut butter and candy. That that's a little thing but you wouldn't believe how many calls that will trigger someone would ask that. We get I guarantee you at least three calls about Mary -- It's all or it can be about the best restaurant in town and in fact. Well on the way in here today Dave potter who is running our electronics -- studio. Brought up the whole issue of the closing. Of Stella. In the French Quarter this past week. Stella is a five star restaurant by anybody's figuring. And -- or unless you you know don't like to eat fabulous food. It's certainly was five star in my ratings. And they decide to closets Jeff Scott Boswell. Just he's closing in the way I read the letter he sent out. It sounded to me. Like they weren't making a profit or maybe weren't making enough of a profit which is. You know you can make a profit on something but work go like hundred. In and fifteen hours a week and take home you know 103 dollars for it which of course you know it is not real profit. But anyway that's that's what I read into that but I don't know if that's what it really is I suspect that if they were making a ton of money with that he would keep going. But he's getting out of that on the other hand his other restaurants -- that remains open. And though with good reason I'm sure that when is quite a money maker it's a great idea it's certainly fabulous location and that right there on Jackson square. And I expect that that's going to be around too long term but I. I have a lot to say. About. The the whole business with with Stella and some other related issues to Stella. Of restaurants like -- An idea and -- but two thirds of the way through writing. An analysis and a opinion on this because I think it's a bigger question than just one restaurant -- And I wanna finish writing it's personal publish it in my newsletter probably on Monday may be on Tuesday by the New Orleans menu which you can get to by just going to know menu dot com there it is. It's good people waiting already while this is great let's start. -- Norman. I tell -- who I. I will do raiders are a smoker and I went yeah and spoke. Are you wanna do what you do in the moisture in -- that that smoker. -- -- forums I usually do my funny the way of doing it is I I saved tuna fish hands my wife bullies always eating tuna. -- saves me the hands which as you know flat and then you know -- squat. Right I take the label off and then a film with water and I put him on top of the grill. Like around the edges in the gaps you know as many as I can put on there and just filled with water and then when you close the cover. What happens is that it after him not too long time the water starts boiling and it keeps the steamy kind of environment. In the pit which I think is -- critically. Important issue for pork in particular. -- barbecue in general so it and for ribs I certainly would do that. He -- up. Much of -- better than you. A bunch of them what the little -- output as many as I have room for there are other ways of doing this you know if you have some kind of follows some kind of opinion of some kind that it's in the original old -- pain -- you know bright -- for food -- Anything that works for I mean -- I have a little tin -- is here. And actually step on him in the middle of the night. We'll go and enjoy yourself thank you. Tomorrow is I didn't mention this -- added it's Father's Day I'm a dad. Warren is here Warren come on -- They are currently doing great. The -- -- equipment state tomorrow. You know. And in the skillet else curious and substitute thought it would be angry. Oh would in fact. Not a fan of bacon and beef to get -- like bacon cheeseburgers that'll like they can rightfully minions and they'll. Don't think he belongs love bacon of course. You make it -- -- at hearings red beans just one obvious thing Ryder Cup but not with state that for me. Off. Skillet on the top of the -- with some -- -- See your own votes the stake on both sides. Stick to the -- and then releases than you turn it over once. Let's -- on the other side that little Europe of a blow putter. Between the stake in the medal which doesn't seem like he's in the capital but there res one. On that water gets very hot and gives you a nice little crusty -- on the outside. And that to finish cooking then you put it in the of the -- Pena just with all in the -- Or you can transfer it to a different and repeated pain preferably and you lose that pan -- with -- -- Legalese Japan. That's the single most often. Administered piece of advice I have -- -- ways to do with that. Actually populate. I don't thoughtful way L -- like toward. I. Oh yeah sure sure is it -- bullion remind. Twelve -- I kind of want pale by and -- So alone. He could get away with that is -- the ball and keeps it from lying flat on the bottom of the pain and sometimes sometimes not. Always you know you just have a big hand would be a good idea. -- Illinois derby instead of a nine inch maybe about an eleven. What. You're close enough yeah okay verdict. Aren't they are by the way change your oil and I know that's that's the auto that she sorry to even have -- on it would function. Sean -- welcome. -- They get well. I'm I am I at age forty. Oh well one and over it and it eater. I mean is it. -- that we. Currently. Right -- but some some that are in and other people recently 0878. D.'s -- true. I'm totally freaked out and -- and so my question is it accurate in. Would be much. At -- well. This is this is not a health and nutrition program. But that doesn't mean I don't have thought about that but -- I've what I want to make it clear that I am not a nutritionists I'm not a doctor. And what you're asking are actually kind of medically related thinks so. So don't take any any medical advice from me. But I I can tell you of being missed avid sneaky to myself that seven that what did they say seven to ten days. That's I think that's a gross overestimate. -- And it's kind of gross things to talk about from the bank of it. But it's -- But I think maybe three times a week might be a bit much. Well frankly I think he'd be better off. If you -- really good stakes. Maybe once -- week. And it's. He is and that way you you'll be satisfied better -- the -- what kind what kind of state you liked Coke. Unlike -- I love believed. And -- at a restaurant and definitely Kelly usually -- column in. OK well that Bob rabbis are terrific. Yeah I just. Wouldn't worry about it too much you eat some other things obviously soon. But it's -- he -- create. And it all that I am now on getting the album art. Just think about it a little bit more. Activities every day. A lot of that. A lot of that is have it you know you you start doing something in the -- You start -- for a while just to give you something completely ridiculous. I got in the habit at the radio station went particularly when I was on from three to six and I hadn't really eaten anything since breakfast -- Watched a lot of weight that way but it. It's it was something I got in the habit of and then I started stopping off at the Eminem's machine. On between the studio in the bathroom which I would go to -- the bathroom first and then washing my hands and then. Get out of a handful of Eminem's. And then even more on the way back to the studio and I got to the point where I didn't do that like if I didn't have a quarter in my pocket. If I didn't do that I crave it. And that's ridiculous I mean it's just it just got to be habit with me and it's easy to get out of habits don't you just don't do it for -- indeed just say OK and it. For one week -- -- and even stakes in all and -- other things. How do you. Can pull me away from the stake this time I'd love a good steak you know it's always on my mind. But a little harassment she go to. These days this was not true but twenty years ago but it's definitely true now. Why have these nice thick pork shops. Vallone and usually there are double cut pork chops and the cook I'm just like they cook steaks. And you eat them and -- like half the price of the state to begin. Everybody bit as I mean every bit as good and -- ideas. -- That brought -- that idea. I can look up about one week Atlanta. OK so now erupting now -- now the fourth portions woman -- -- in the in the somewhere and I know what else you know what else works well. You can if you get physically cut this is sometimes hard to get but fresh tuna. And if you -- it like you would cook the steak which is really how you -- tuning in my opinion you cook it exactly. The way you cook a steak with any kind of slots at that you would put on the state. -- think that that they'll pull you away from a little bit put three times might be too. I -- my -- and remember I am not a doctor and remember also. To check you're we'll balance so your tires will Wear -- -- we we have -- slip into that show you what's going. Will return will try to -- to come back with more of the food Joey after first please this it's a pretty good place they have it's a nice looking restaurant and of course everybody talks about the flow of thought and frequency of allegedly rightly. But anyway they they. Also have in addition all those new little issues they have some of the things that I think the real interest in one of them. Is this -- the name of which I can't. Remember exactly they may just simply call it beef fund do which is not exactly. Accurate but actually not that -- And it consists of the opinion of simmering. Water. It's actually beef stock I think. They put vegetables. Onions and things like that they bring you all that you pretty much do it yourself. And it's sitting on top of a little burner on top of this -- on top of the table. And they bring you a plate. Of these. Slices of beef. Are or they also have these very thin rice paper. -- noodles that almost seem like they're made of plastic when you're handling them and they're dried form it's just. And the way they feel but when she slipped them into the water they soften up right away. And then you roll them up with the beef -- with the vegetables and everything you eat that it's really unique in and a lot of fun and very tasty too. And it's a full mill. Excellent king the street I think. Full or I did what they say full -- oh yeah that's a different restaurant and not far away actually but do you follow orchid thank you. There's so many places -- folks on the -- these days. The -- restaurant that a lot of people have been talking about lately the Vietnamese restaurant. That the buzz is about is a place called now mis. And AME NSE. It's in what used to be a gas station. On the corner. Of tooling in Carrollton. Quite quite a great. Location there I mean the traffic runners tremendous. Everybody knows where it is and every time I've wanted to go there. And have almost been several times but. But not only is a parking lot filled but all of the all of the spots along the Streeter feel. The Carroll didn't stretch from Tulane all the way pretty much the city park. Is now a really great restaurants owned lots of good places lots of variety. Not just to local kind of variety but also some ethnic variety to. But there news linking canal street both sides. To 60. 187 or use our telephone number we'd love to talk with you about where you've been eating -- where you've been drinking. Names mentioned a few minutes ago that the cajun zydeco festival was going on I think it set the usual place in the French market between the of the jazz and heritage. Association. They put that missing people who do the jazz festival. And it used to be part of the tomato festival creole tomato festival -- busted up this year for some reason. I suspect that they have food the music is free but that you pay for the huge ego. We're having more and more festivals like that a -- of great thing to 60187. I think it's news time business.
