Cream Brule

Yes, I know it's spelled wrong. But that's how it was in the menu.
Tin, OJ, Shirley and I decided to have dinner at Brisdini in Belden Place. I never knew this little alley existed...basically a street open to foot traffic only. It had lights strewn across the alley overhead, with quaint outdoor seating for the restaurants. The food was quite good -- I was pleased with simplicity of my red snapper dish (sitting on a bed of crab meat risotto!) I hate it when they smother red snapper with all this crap to cover up the fish taste; here, it was just salt & pepper. Yummy. And the meat was firm & flaky, just the way I like it. I keep forgetting to shoot more food pictures during dinner (I was a bit distracted by the good wine, good food, and good company) so here's one of dessert:

If I keep up this eating out business, I'm going to lose the fatboy challenge. Time to really buckle down and eat right. I can just feel those inches of gelatinous fat creeping around my jiggling waistline.

You gotta go to Plouf. Chef there is Thomas Weibull, of Les Amis. The mussels in coconut milk is to die! Also, try Cafe Bastille, it's a mainstay.

Check out Cafe Claude on Claude Lane a block away from Belden Alley. Also a good bet. Cafe de la Presse, another block or 2 away is also always good.

Bon appetit!
