Re: “Southern Gourmasian announces brick and mortar location

Great news and congratulations! Any news on if he is going to be open for lunch and dinner? If it's only for lunch, I may have to find a job downtown.

Re: “Whose trees these are they think they'll know

Count us among the landscape theft victims. We had put in brand new landscaping a few years ago, and woke up one morning to find some trees and landscape lighting stolen. Definitely suspected someone in the landscaping industry, as they only took the high dollar items.

Re: “Food Feedback Friday:

I don't often go to the LR Farmer's Market because I just don't like dealing with the crush of humanity, but Saturday morning found us up early, so we took a trip on down. We headed into the Rivermarket for a little breakfast and I chose a breakfast burrito from Jay's pizza. You can chose from a selections of meats or spinach, so I place my order for a egg, cheese, and bacon burrito and had a seat. When they brought my burrito to me, it was a thing of beauty. They use fresh made tortillas from Brenda's, crisp them up on the outside, stuff them with scrambled eggs, cheese, bacon and potatoes and serve with a side of pico de gallo and a picked beet and onion relish. It was quite tasty way more than I could eat. I thought it could have benefited from a bit more heat, but I was too busy scarfing down my food to ask if they had any hot sauce.

On the way back to our car, we stopped in at Dandelion for the first time. Their wall of tea, herbs and spices is a bit overwhelming, but they were very helpful and we walked away with some herbs de provence and ancho chile powder. Maybe next time we'll delve into something a little more adventurous.

Also had a nice lunch of a turkey wrap at Old Mill Bread. Nothing they do there is really innovative, but I always enjoy whatever I get...except for their salads. I do not recommend the salads. Their bread was the foundation for some damn fine BLTs this weekend.

Re: “Food Feedback Friday: loud music, liquor tax, and Lulav

A lunch date with my Mom put me at Bobby's Country Kitchen in WLR. That place is always packed every time I go (which isn't often, considering I generally try not to eat 2 days worth of fat grams at one lunch). The fried chicken was crispy on the outside, moist on the inside, but lacked a bit of seasoning. One side they offered that you don't see very often is English peas and since Mr. Mordy hates them with a passion, I jumped at the opportunity and was quite pleased.

Dinner before the Rep Saturday night was at CBG. I love their charcuterie and cheese selections, although it's probably the most expensive in town. The cheeses were the real standout - a full bodied chocolate cheddar and a lighter ash-wrapped goat's milk cheese. My smoked catfish burger was nicely cooked, but was a bit bland and benefited greatly from the Louisiana hot sauce I added (bonus points to CBG for offering both Louisiana and Tabasco - if only they'd add Crystal, too).

I loved Loblolly's salted caramel, but the last time I tried it, it was different - way too rich. Have they changed their recipe or was it my imagination?

Re: “Taj Mahal is a dining wonder

Best Indian food in town, hands down. We've actually had issues getting them to make it hot enough for our tastes.

Re: “Food Feedback Friday: a badger, a birthday, and Bruno's

Adding to the Mr. Chen's love - Tuesday's cold had me wanting a big, steaming bowl of soup, and since Pho Thanh My is closed on Tuesdays, I headed to Mr. Chens at lunch for their Szechuan Beef Stew Noodle Soup. Pieces of roast, bok choy, cilantro and noodles in beef broth. The beef was fine (although a little fatty for my taste), but the real star was the rich and spicy broth. You could give me a bowl of the broth with the noodles, and I'd be a happy camper. Warmed me right up.

Also had some sushi from Hanaroo this week - that place has never disappointed.
