yes...it is a real shame "when foodies try to act as if they know something." Call it a vibe or whatever, some things show up as red flags and...well, time and truth always meet. Was sorry to hear the chef was gone, but maybe it was for the best. All I know is that Chef Robert Larson's recipes last night were just as good as the former chef's (I ordered from the new items that are on the menu to find out for myself if the dishes were comparable in quality, taste, and presentation -- and they indeed were). It's time to move on -- and no one should be posting a picture of a church in flames or saying lots of negative things. Only whoever was directly involved knows the real story...the rest of us can only speculate. And, frankly, I don't have time to try and figure out who was right, who was wrong. I wasn't there. I think everyone needs to MOVE ON and: if it's good, eat it. If it isn't, don't. PS -- Everyone, all of us will "reep" (reap) what we sow. Everyone. Now...let's eat.
The food was good when Chef Michelle was there, but even us customers had to deal with her ego...she talked non-stop, and was just too gushy-humble to seem for real. I hear she's gone now...and I'm going back tonight to check out the new chef, Chef Robert Larson. I've heard through the grapevine that he's terrific. Really like the atmosphere, the "feeling" of the place, the owners (I always enjoy seeing the proprietors of a place), and the staff. This is definitely a restaurant I can go to where everybody knows my name -- and that's part of the magic of New Orleans, cher!
