Postscript to CBM in Paris: La belle cuisine, bien sur!

Eleven, where wine is served.
  • Eleven, where wine is served.

I forgot to include in yesterday's post about my interview with Don Bacigalupi of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art a question he was asked — one he said he'd never gotten before a talk he'd given. And it was, how's the food at the museum? What's on the menu?

Bacigalupi said he was "thrilled" with the question. "That's something we've paid attention to." He bragged on Eleven's "high South, lower Midwest" cuisine and the efforts to buy locally.

Typical question from the French, non? I asked him if the questioner wanted to know about the wine. He didn't, but Bacigalupi addressed that important question. "I did mention that we do serve very good wine," though the museum is in a dry county. Do the French have the concept of "dry county"?

    Contrary to rumor, Live Life Chill, the bar/restaurant in the erstwhile Revolution Taco and Tequila Lounge space at the corner of Cantrell and President Clinton Avenue, is not closed. Service manager Lindsey McFadin called the Times this afternoon to say a rumor the bar had closed was killing business; by 3 p.m., no one had been in. The Times, too, had heard the rumor from a number of sources. What has changed, McFadin said, is that the bar is now only open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
