  1. Yeah, it's been a while for us but I think, if you go 'old school' (which in our case means a caesar and steak au poivre) you can still enjoy the glory days. And I also had a good bowl of chowder there at lunch more recently. Based on my personal experience - avoid lobster like the plague!
  2. You're going to make a Viennese sandwich between two slices of (from-the-ridiculous-to-the-sublime) tacos?
  3. I've always questioned your taste in entertainment but puhleez tell me you don't really watch Extreme Chefs!?! Jim's, RedX, the 'dotte and all of the other under-belly glimpses into our fair city I could handle but that is just embarrassing!
  4. The pictures don't really come close to capturing the true vibe, or the booming crowds when it's busy since that was shortly after 7am. I also left out the city's largest collection of bells and the antique furniture and kitchen dioramas that line all of the windows along the front of the building. It's one of those places where I'm there so often I forget how different it may be to some people....when my sister in law was in town last summer, she confirmed through word and priceless expression- Red-X is one of a kind! You couldn't find any toothless natives to pose at that hour of the morning, huh? It's too bad there wasn't a wine tasting this week during your blog . . . I just love the juxtaposition of wine snobs and Riversidians!
  5. Bourdain did the whole "Winter's Bone" thing (including nearly killing/paralyzing the author of the book from whence it came) and made Miz-ery look bad enough (not inaccurately, I hasten to add). I am glad at least that said author is an alum of KU!
  6. That pork *IS* incredible. And, for the record, Nick and I lobbied him to have you and Breann (sp?) join us for the first meal in the tin can. So now you know who your real friends in KC are
  7. Any leftovers from either Port Fonda or the Ad Hoc chicken? Ain't too proud to beg.
  8. I think you could just fill the ol' cajun turkey fryer up with Crisco and set it out on the deck today. No need to heat up the kitchen with the immersion circulator!
  9. Unfortunately, chiliheadmike moved to KY a couple of years ago. You *are* getting close, though.

  11. FYI to anyone planning to visit Sebo . . . they are open on Sunday evenings but they do NOT serve sushi. The menu looked good nonetheless but we opted to do something else Sunday and returned Tuesday for some of the best sushi we've ever had.
  12. you're just sayin' that because they fed you well and didn't make you pull weeds!
  13. Slightly belated announcement but it's gazpacho martini season in the lounge at bluestem and, if that weren't incentive enough, there are some amazing picked veg (grown by the usual suspects: Crums, Thane Palmberg to name 2) that are also worth a trip. Wonderful flavor, not pucker-inducing like they are at too many places. Loving the okra and fennel most of all!
  14. yes, I don't kid myself . . . whenever the market changes, I'm sure something more lucrative will replace this, but it's still a great idea for the time -- and in a VERY visible area, adjacent to our soon-to-be-fabulous performance arts center. The possibilities are amazing. Small victories.
