Re: “Food Trends 'Trickle Up' to the Big Guys on Weekly Open Thread

The bacon in unexpected places trend comes to mind (I will shamefully admit that if I lived near a Denny's, I would talk a friend into trying that maple bacon sundae of theirs for the hell of it.)

Blue cheeses seem to becoming more popular, as do "superfruit" themed dishes (holy cow, when will pomegranates get around their IPO?). It also seems like avocados have gotten more popular, and "gourmet" takes on boring dishes, complete with a pesto crust or something.

Re: “Chuy's Bringing Its Tex-Mex Party to Midtown

I used to work for them in Texas, and I have to say that it was the best scenario possible for a waiting job I ever had. It was a fun place to work if you had to be slinging dinner plates somewhere. And the product is actually pretty good - I think some of the backlash has just been a lack of welcome for the Tex Mex thing?

Re: “Contest Time at Weekly Open Thread!

"And this is a picture of my cousin Mark. He's the really obnoxious one I've talked about before. We've found that on the unfortunate, but rare, occasion that Mark graces a family outing with his presence, it's easier to challenge his manhood with massive quantities of food to shove in his mouth than it is to listen to him speak for two hours. It's symbiotic really, he thinks we revere him for his "talent" with oversized sandwiches, and we think the break from noises coming from his face is relaxing."

Re: “Euro Cukes: Classic Cucumber Salad at Gerst Haus

Gerst Haus scares me. Something about the location and the atmosphere just scream "predatory scenario".

However- in a big group of friends where the beer is the focus, I love a good Gerst Haus visit.

Re: “Kings of Leon Frontman Gets All Foodie on Iron Chef

From what I understand from former employees, they used to come into Boundry minutes before the kitchen closed and order a table full of food. Regularly. : /

Re: “Green Tomato Overload at the Open Thread

I wonder - would green tomato salsa taste anything like salsa verde made with tomatillos? Or would it taste closer to a standard salsa made with red tomatoes?
