On the travel and leisure magazine which is a very well done magazine I think they really covered all the things I an interest in especially food stuff. But they came out travel and leisure did with a ranking of the ten best cities. In the America. And they've they've put it in exactly those words. Because. These weren't just about food they weren't just about hotels or you know it is just Ian general. With no categories and all they came up with ten. Restaurant here they are in reverse order number ten out of hand is Honolulu. Number nine. Is Nashville. Number eight. Was ash bill but who wonder who who who if anybody put that in order like that on purpose. San Antonio Texas that's kind of a surprise to me but it certainly rich city you're in interest in. Ethnic cuisines is particularly Hispanic cuisines. Chicago yes absolutely Chicago. You know their number five. And a big big it really under rated those cities too much you you've been there. New York City you know what more do you need that's Santa Fe, New Mexico. Which is a surprising place if you ever get there you'll you'll fall in love with it but for a lot of reasons you won't. Be ready for. Savannah Georgia. And then he knew what was coming sooner or later New Orleans is number who. Who's number one. Charleston. I was in Charleston about a year ago. And wound up spending about five days there and in which had nothing much to do. The main thing I remember about it was that it was just as hot as it is now here. But I was looking over this list and all of the top ten list you a lot of video of places. Are a lot like New Orleans and think about OK that you starting with Charleston in the number one on the list. Charleston has there's a lot about that cities that will remind you knew Owens that the food. That the architecture. Everything about our city. It's a lot in common in Charleston I think where better but you know that's another story. On then there's new ones of course and then Savannah Georgia same story is I just told about Charleston. Santa Fe, New Mexico. In a lot of funny funny ways it's a lot like our hometown here. Assent is New York city's unique unto itself Chicago pretty much to San Antonio Asheville if you don't mind being out in the middle of nowhere. And Nashville Honolulu so that's that was the list. Insisting no it was like it one. Such things is that emerge this is the food show we would love to talk if you buy food at restaurants but cooking wine. And all of that a program today is sponsored. By Andre is restaurant entrees restaurant used in Metairie. And they have been for quite awhile. Red Cross. Causeway boulevard from lakeside mall. Easy to get to lots and lots of parking here's you know if if you over. Have rejected this rest and that the restaurant restaurant because it didn't have enough parking. This is of major problem for a lot of restaurants but it's not a problem over the years maverick they almost have too much parking. But they've got plenty. What is what you're really going here for ago is not the park obviously they have a great bar tickets you know singing people in the bar. That's pretty nice to. They also have. Some very interest in special menus that they do at certain times of the year. And others though he says things too cute cute she going. When you go over their entrees but there is one thing I went you know and that is. The two aspects of that harassment that are the most impressive part the seafood that they get every day they bring it in from the actual fisherman. And it's all freshen its role on. Believe if necessary. Right there in the rest and that is also approval of the meets that he has his own butcher. And that all comes together in a very nice menu a lot of than usual dishes that you will not have had in other. Our parts of the city that are influenced by. By the Italian cuisines there is and make no mistake. There is not just one kind of Italian cooking here are. Hundreds of amid scenes seams and if you ever go to Italy you'll see how that is true everywhere you go. That the Italians. Do their food and different sort of way and it's really agree to dig into wow I find that in. It's the food showed the system that's more us we'd love to talk with you buy food restaurants but cooking. Whine all of that and we'd love to hear from you about any of that we're very proud.

Next week on this program the one that appears on Saturdays and Sundays. We will not be here I don't know what they're gonna put on the year but it's not going to be the food show and the only reason is. My son and my daughter and my wife and myself and my two. Grandsons.

It's do you want me to take a break now Arty shell. Know OK all right let's check in here is Mike Mike welcome to the future. I don't know I thank yeah let me show. But don't act now like I Harken back like you'd kill time when things about me on now and dumb I think this culture of regret. That seems only been maybe eight is absolutely phenomenal. But it that's apparel line that finish that that it's that read it here yet it's not really new world stage. Like it okay and there is there. And I must say it's not my favorite dishes but I've run into some versions of the that it just in another category that the mean one. The comes to my mind use pitch count ally over on. Louisiana avenue laurel like Pincus across street and they have. On that that version of shrimp and grits its release. We're talking we're going to chow line and wrong okay good. No one else to do well. But or is that. I was thinking. Tried and so we can't play and I haven't like in the I am a few places on lake front that seemed to be. Everything is like to stick a lottery in. Immigrants aren't even light everything around black and you've only seen it before it. Yeah well there's a there's a lot of different ways. Which aren't too much lately in them all you want is simply emerge from open play and regrets. And Libya in limbo thing. Like it seemed like public. Has gotten into it in the play when he would do everything to the point where he can't even take witchy and yet it feels that. No. OK let me by tonight and it's an agreement you have Amanda. It was a great cook and also I'd keep Malo was so great and we don't need twenties by iTunes won't make a bottom to make things state. Well you still still don't and I went on what IC frankly it's it seems the neat things are getting less complex. On in times. It did so. Well I don't know about that but I think it has a lot to do with the younger chefs and the younger customers to who have. Turn things round. Well it's an interesting point of view anyway thank you for. Yeah. Seal it by it's the food show. And Tom it's more it's it's great to be here would be talking about food about restaurants all right now you get right in we've been very busy poll showed grace oh. This would be the moment program hold. And analysts know what you've been thinking about 260. When he said the use our telephone right now and then tonight W you'll. Market right in with no other problems. Let's see here what else do we need to get to before we. Is this something it was on the back of my mind. And it was to bring up and well on the back in my mind anymore cases the problem. On 260. 187. Call right now. And so we'd love to hear from you though whatever's on your mind a program today is sponsored by Iran sport boys. Brands for boys. Certainly famous enough for its more noise. They do that the right way which is now amounts to a very simple strategy. What they do is they roast their own beef. And from what's left over after they do that roasting he tickled the juices in the bones in the stock and everything. And they to reduce that down to make the gravy which you and I both know is the most important part of the pork voice which is making good gravy. And they continue one in making other items to. And this has all added up to become. 01 of the best places to get the the classic old style neighborhoods kind of cooking that they always have gone. That range four points from the time they started up that 3939. Veterans that go round 1975. Packed with exactly. And they just keep on going now the new location. That they just open a couple months ago is on protect and you street about a half a block off of upper line. Uptown they've they've never had harassment a pound force that's in addition to the scene and shrewd look to have become an. Indeed any of those four boys but also all the other stuff on the menu it's a fairly substantial. It's Koreans four boys. They are in Metairie on. Veterans highway near. But Cleary there'll also in Kenner. West esplanade moralist just awful Williams boulevard and the newest location of all. And pretend you street at opera line. From grand sport points. We have a few people in all the pilots it or it's meant well welcome to the food show that a pronounce your name right. Yeah it should. Are. You a question much credit. Are. A mellow out right now via our very June oh. And a law and trip in Greenwich. Or watch it and it was there that it. Thought. You know lot of doubt Mario on it either way it. Oh well violent things are always transporting one another form. Point a to point B light you know there's a train that runs every day from New Orleans stick to Carolina that there are. And you know that that alone will bring you low home. But it's a dish it you didn't see I can tell you for darn sure you didn't see it in restaurants until about. Now we read that scenario. Mike Rounds of seventy Lebanon are. Not regret. Remember that. Oh or area and it the people now. And now a real Europe regret. Okay. Well I go I'm glad to hear this perspective. But yet the difficulty it's the food show. Tom is another another guy named Tom. Of them in those days welcome to the show one. We talked before agent B and in the work that's done this morning and parts what. How about agent. Four or restrict. I don't think that would work. If two to get. Anything like that you probably better off doing a slow smoking in the way that you would do with like ribs or some. But I don't think that trying to H that in the dry age technique is gonna work at that you can have love rotten meat. Yeah that are no idea I've never tried it before and I've never seen in on anybody's menus so I don't know but it. Aka a little grill and a small pressure cooker and I mean you reduce cheered so go at all. Real good in there and throw what. But you know in the liquid and a basket you know local that would shoot an air and then go for a few minutes and then bounced. At. Comment that that that about. Boston but Putin Putin who loot it. Paul yeah there's no doubt about it but you know he's that's nothing like the way you would each be that it's two totally different idea. But maybe you're a regional open Mike you a little bit different kick up on. It's it's it's an interesting idea. But I'd be real careful but. Everything about pork is not like beef. Thank you for calling EC. It's the food Schoen Tom the warrants and here it is only do we know. And it's in all it's John here it is John welcome to the food. I could have been in the war I'm doing fine. Yeah well thank you. That question that you might get up and let's see I mean and I'll. Boom can take your. Well you know we've got all those Chinese restaurants around my my first pick on the South Shore would be five happiness. And my other pick would be on the North Shore trait again which it because that's Chinese restaurant round. And then we have a few others but the Chinese restaurant business has gone so far over to doing. Deliveries and takeout food that it's hard to predict he'd been. With your learning from an injured eating it sometimes. But an egg foo young I mean you're going to the beginning. Chinese style eating in this. In this country and really. I height in other words I don't know will place to get that but we're gonna put this out on the rail here and see if somebody gives us a call.

The restaurant that you love your favorite restaurant and the dish that you go there to get the burden this is so wonderful place. Which to rip the cooking. On. Believe it or not. Not everybody no news about the existence of that rest. And so what I'm always trying to persuade you to do it by me speaks so closely and intimately. Is to tell us about these places instead of just letting them sit there because that doesn't do anybody any good and if you're thinking of using. Your favorite restaurant. As a kind of a secret that you can only you know but so when you bring people there that protesters and it doesn't actually work everybody ultimately knows everything especially. These days so. Yet but the snow but that I'm always on the lookout for new restaurants in old restaurants and suddenly got a lot better.

We all get called by some kind of junk food at sometime in your life I mean it's no avoiding it. The makers of the stuff know exactly. What flavors. Colors textures. Will address yours sub conscious desires. We're. Hard wired to like sweet crude for example in high fat foods. It doesn't care what kind of sweet or what kind of that it is. So we get jelled trends that emotional fight with high fructose corn syrup and pure garbage you know. Well but we don't just like it we develop our attachments to certain junk foods. And we feel that that we might have to be loyal to knows some people. We'll get mad when I say this. It applies to doughnuts that's for sure snow balls candy bars all these are wonderful things except that he just you know loaded with other problems. On cubic spies. Mostly hamburgers most prized. Rationally we shouldn't need any of that stuff but it's not good for you. Does it even tastes good it really doesn't know not as good as food made with better ingredients in careful ways. Little bit of good each goes a lot for them enough a lot of junk that I know anyway today despite all that today. Is. National. Junk food day. What's your favorite junk food.

Implement cada. And what this means in Spanish. Is it's kind of a soft tortilla. Usually made with the usual all masa meal rolled up around the filling of cheeses. Chicken. Shredded or dried beef and pork that kind of thing the meets our combined. With a light sauce of tomatoes that's where the name comes him at home on top of that home pilots of reference to tomatoes. I instead a chilly that's what you would get within in ciudad impeached did you achieve today there you go you know it's that same idea but with tomatoes in its Q. Two or three make up a plate and then you're stuffed in you know it's not how Mexican food and I have. If food in literature our item here. Francis Parkinson. High eighties KE YES. Was her name. She was owed New Orleans writers who lived here I don't know if it was all her life but it was a long long time she was born. Today in 1885. And she wrote. Along along with very many other things. A book on a novel called. Dinner at and ones. And as a result of the popularity. Of that book and it's a sold like crazy everybody loved of Francis Parkinson ties in effect is still. In the French Quarter there's a building that is which she used to live. On anyway. On. You there was a New York food writer's name was Lucius Beebe he was the story unto himself. And he suggested to the Brennan's. That if and once could have a book. A body itself you know dinner evidence ones that the Brennan's ought to do breakfast at Brennan's which they did. And it became as you know it very very popular. Not just did sure. But also the kind of dish that you would. I have four friends you know for a long time. And that's how that played out. Is the house at the corner of chartreuse charters and personal lines name for. It's the food show until the sports. And we. What named to three top fried chicken places being asked to do. Let's see fewer race would be one of them mr. ads would be one. Cookie chase. That's three. You can probably come up with a bunch of them put up that chip by me debt that list every hour. Or maybe every day for a while and we come up with a different lists for him that she is the way things like that go. You remember one thing and then you forget another thing oh well 260. 1872601870. They have above and others have but one not quite fifteen minutes left to the program would love to talk with Cuba where reduce you have been eating lately. Bill which cut plan for the day my wife. We we were gonna go with some friends in the they. Had to cancel at the last minute so we were trying to figure out where to go for dinner. And whenever that seemed to come up my wife always suggests that we go to the Gulf Coast which is something we almost never do. And I don't know why we don't do it because people ask us about it. What goes on over there there's certainly a major culinary scene there are lots and lots of restaurant. So if you have any suggestions for that we're kind of looking around for a place to go on the yeah. On the Gulf of Mexico there right in Mississippi. It's going to be hot no matter where you go though let's see who is next. Or either of these next 260. Six until 260 and 18 Stephanie is dollar number of Ennis dis ago here that's fine.

It's key high key is that you. Yeah. Well. You know promote it and you. Parents and good restaurants that serve trial. And bet that that would mean no is amortized. The canal street. Did the day I compliment I mean that they didn't have trial. Yeah. That's probably true. The the way the law is written about speckled Trout I assume that's what you talked about spackle yeah that's the on. There are or believe it or not you'll only eleven people this is the last time I checked it's got to be Loewen that by now. There were only eleven people in the state of Louisiana who were permitted to go out and catch. On. It's a speckled Trout and serve it in a restaurant or sell it and a push in a fish store. All the rest of them as one of the fisherman died and that's it it's his lineage will never be felt again in terms again. Getting Trout. There's just not very much of that and most of what you'll see on local menus and stroke he's actually coming from the camera line news. Or Virginia. So that's the problem it's not a. During being at any recommendations. That where many go get some. I wish I did but the restaurants themselves they don't get that they don't get shroud much. It will when they do it is probably coming from North Carolina South Carolina or Virginia. True effects of it's cooked it's ridiculous. And who who big but the wildlife and fisheries kind of the aside of who sit of this state. They are who pretty much fell for what the all the people who were in the tourism side. Going fishing. That's where he'll Wednesday it is a lot of lot of Trout out there. But you can't have put it in a restaurant you can go out catcher on you can catch 25 of them in one day.
