What to Do About Rice?

I have a culinary question. What exactly are we supposed to do with a glob of white rice? Ever so often I get that with my entrée, most often but not exclusively, at a Vietnamese or Chinese restaurant. The rice is tasteless.

Rebuilding the Gateway

A cartoon in The New Yorker once showed a woman who answered the phone in a fashionable Manhattan apartment turning to her husband and saying, “It’s your tally man, he’s tallied your bananas.” As the banana industry returns to New Orleans, we can assume that there will again be tallymen on our streets.

Bud’s With a Twist

There have been certain pivotal moments in New Orleans dining history when the world just seemed to change. For example: • When Antoine’s switched from having an all-French menu to one that included a foreign language: English. • When Galatorie’s stopped serving chipped ice in its water goblets and moved to the more daring cubes. • When Morning Call moved from […]
