Thank you very much it's it's time for more of the food show we have an extremely. Are busy first hour today which I always love. And went through a million topics. And or it seemed like it and now and I know we're ready for you have moved one good thing. It's not my favorite thing you've been so. About the news breaks that we given here aside from give news via info what's going on in the world. Is that two week stop everything we're doing in terms of calls in the that we start over again. Well we're starting over again right now also if you were to call right now you would get right in and we'd love to hear from you. I I've we're always open to anything on your mind whatsoever so I'm not going to add this right away but now it's time. I I always feel like. I have that throws some sort of topic out there for people that you won. And the one I had today with this we've gotten a number of responses to this. Neighborhoods. You that you probably if you lived most of your life in New Orleans you probably. A recall on the different neighborhoods that you lived in unless you were lucky enough to. Which your whole life into one. Neighborhood and that was it I've lived in a bunch of them and which of the neighborhoods that you lived in have the best. Food. They might not have it right there in the middle of that part of the city but it might not be too far away you know like if you know five minute walk or ten minute. Drive or whatever. So. Came up with a few of these and we've gotten a number of answers on it too. So the first one I give viewers that French Quarter and lived in the French Quarter for about three and a half years of back in the seventies. And that believe me if you live in the French Quarter you will be in restaurants all the time and spend all your money. Unless you get used to it and know which you're doing. So but. That's that was problem almost certainly the most. An interesting part of the city that I never leave him. And then mid city comes up pretty much next mainly because I lived in three different places in mid city. When notices in my young teens. Over towards the end of being built street and in mid city itself. One of the greatest things around was Mahan Venus. Which is still there it's still a great place that has a lot of Italian food. If you wanna call the town new investment you you can get away with that it's certainly qualifies. But they also are really good with seafood. And there are good with a lot of things particularly daily specials. I've always thought that mean the news. Which have really strong on that so why's that would be near the top among analysts and ally Eskew. What's neighborhoods have you lived in the U remembers having really great food and it was just your mother or your. Or you were yourself. Doing some cooking for the first time in your lives. And maybe that's what you remember but we'd love to hear from you by any of that. And if you have something and is completely unrelated to this you just wanna. Try to work up a recipe for something or commute report and a restaurant you've been to lately. Please do we love hearing calls them all those kinds here or numbers 260. 187260. 1870. And a call right now and you write in easy enough. Right now coming few from the from the cool radio. You and what do we call this again Nicole raiding the cold water ranch there we ought. If I made it up and I forgot what analysts and now. We are here at the cool water ranch where there is team in the Mintz thunderstorm coming through huge. Huge booms of lightning and thunder. And you know pretty good rain coming down to hope you listen to report we just a few minutes ago but that. It's rated real hard right now I would stay in your car and put off where you need to go. A little while just to be on the safe side but then again my wife tells me I spent too much time on the safe side to a 60. 187. Is our number 260187. You know just with two with a little while we've spent on this there were several people. Who talked about restaurants that they or places to live. With that had restaurants that are a little bit obscured now late on Jefferson highway. There was a time when they were riddled with restaurants I mean quite a few of my used to live not far from there and I can tell. And then going back the other way heading back at the time you get into a no other big story. And the team Mike is joining us over here on the orange phone Mike welcome coma and then. I have a cookie question where you. So I make it. It. I could locate spoken. Short ripped or recently. Pyramid and I mean in a pretty big pocket wrote in a broad and and an ad.
