This reminds me to ask... does Taco Mamacita still have that big painting of "Dirty Sanchez" on the wall?
The gnocchi/fennel/corn deal does look fantastic, but it's one of those hilarious fifty-step things where you just pass out from wine-drinking long before it's ever finished. http://www.williams-sonoma.com/recipe/gnoc…
I really do need help remembering the numerical names of every single place that has opened here since the mid 80s. When someone suggests meeting me at one of them, I take notes on my abacus.
I have braved the Hot Beef Sundae. It seems like a terrible idea, but when you get right down to it, it's just a variation on a shepherd's pie, just styled to look like an ice cream treat (complete with a cherry tomato on top). Which might be a terrible idea on a 90-degree September afternoon, I guess.
I quite liked Hog & Hominy and I was ready to hate it because, oh, I'm ornery. But it's practically a City House clone, that same exact sorta Italian, sorta Southern. Once I figured that out, all my defenses crumbled. Though I still prefer CH because, uh, like I said...I'm ornery.
I once drove from California to Nashville (avoiding all interstates; I got all the way to Little Rock before I got on one) and one of my rules was "if I see a café or diner called 'Mom's' I have to stop and eat a piece of pie." Well, I ate eleven pieces of cherry pie. There are a lot of "Mom's" in America.
I think the argument should be, hooray, an option for people who are already parked. There's a pretty captive audience, just a couple of blocks from Baptist Hospital. Not to mention that I used to have hand therapy like one foot from that place and after being subjected to that jack-booted therapy, a fancy gout-defying steak would have been an excellent fuck-you to my diagnosis.
