Last July, I wrote a post and asked you to itemize your last supper. (I’ll wait here while you read the link.) Okay, so you got the idea, right. What I loved about that post was that our old buddy, Bill “Freckle Face” Addison, chimed in with this:

Darn you, N2. This is a question I’ve been meaning to post on our blog. Love this subject. Just for today, here’s my answer:
– Maryland jumbo lump crab salad with blood orange and avocado
– A thali of South Indian curries, mostly vegetables and seafood, like served here.
– A modest plate of Ed Mitchell’s barbecue. A plate of barbecue from City Market in Luling would substitute nicely.
– A small dish of blood orange sorbet
– A big bowl of peach crisp (with vanilla-bean brown butter poured over the fruit) with vanilla-bourbon ice cream melting atop. Then, curtains.
Sadly, not long after I listed my extensive and expensive requests, my relationship with Bill went, well, curtains. In honor of Bill, who I miss dearly, let us relive the idea of ordering your last meal on earth. What would be on your list? Who would be with you? How do I make my voice do this? (Obviously, I am on deadline and need a distraction.)9 Comments »

As I mentioned earlier, while the 2009 Texas Sommelier Conference was taking place at the Four Seasons Resort & Club in Las Colinas, there were 21 Texas sommeliers competing for Texas’ Best Sommelier. Last night at the Grand Tasting, the winners were announced. June-Ann Rodil of Uchi in Austin won. Anibal Calcagno (Brenner’s Steakhouse in Houston) took 2nd, and John Honefenger (Tony’s in Houston) took third.

Disher with a reservation to Pappas Bros. tonight writes:
I have a RW reservation for 2 that I won’t be able to use: Pappas Bros., 7pm tonight. I thought there might be a couple Dishers out there who might be interested? If you get any takers, you can give them my e-mail address.
Sometimes a person gets to experience a meal that is so beautifully presented that you almost don’t want to dive in, but you know how tasty each morsel will be that you have indulge. This can be anything from the stunning raw shellfish platter at Oceanaire, a delightfully deconstructed cheese plate at Parigi, a celery and baby arugula salad at Stephan Pyles, Abraham’s Chimay mussles at Salum, or a pile of Snuffer’s cheese fries.
Dinner at Café on the Green is much like this. Continue reading "Artistic, Elegant and Inviting Dining at Cafe on the Green"3 Comments »
