Re: Kitchen Nightmares: Zeke's

Finally watched it last night on DVR. Typical "Nightmares" formula episode. Stubborn owners suddenly "see the light" at the pre-determined point in the episode. I see Oceana Grill is the actual season finale, and is getting the Ramsay treatment tonight. Unfortunate that it's two ...

Kitchen Nightmares: Zeke's

Long-awaited airing of the Zeke's episode of Kitchen Nightmares this coming Friday, 5/13, 7pm CT on WVUE. The teaser, as usual, makes it look like a real trainwreck. Appears to be the season finale.

Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc/Viognier 2009

Nice white blend with floral notes and white peach on the nose; crisp melon, tropical and stone fruit on the palate. Off-dry at around 12% ABV (13% on the 2010). Currently a $10 bargain at Dorignac's (reg. $16). Apparently, the distributor made a deal to move a surplus of the previous vintage at a g...

Re: Caffe Fresca/Cafe Noelle

Hmmm... have not experienced this "attitude" of which you speak-- in fact, quite the opposite. Care to elaborate with specifics? As to pricing, yes, sometimes, on some things, it does cross my mind, but then I remember it's a restaurant with full service, and I'm not ordering/paying at the...

Re: Caffe Fresca/Cafe Noelle

Sunday breakfast report: Decided to try out Cafe Noelle today, only to find they were doing an early breakfast buffet service 7-11am, followed by a brunch buffet service 11am-3pm. Initially, things seemed a little awkward-- reminiscent of having breakfast at a nice motel/small hotel. An impromptu bu...

Caffe Fresca/Cafe Noelle

After a lengthy construction, Caffe Fresca (W. Metairie Ave. near Clearview) has moved to the other end of the same building. I recall past reports from some who didn't care for their offerings, but we've always found the service prompt, friendly and courteous, and the kitchen reasonably consistent....

Napa Creek Reds

Napa Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007 and Petite Sirah Napa Valley 2006. Both exhibit characteristic varietal flavors of raspberry/cherry and blackberry/blueberry, respectively, with good concentration of fruit, nicely balanced acidity, and integrated tannins. Easy to drink, and easy to gif...

Re: Katie Bar The Door?

Found out yesterday that Katie's is back open for lunch Saturdays. Was told it (being closed) was a "summer thing".
