I hope the folks who own Macaluso’s Italian Restaurant (2443 Forest Park Blvd.) have found a young and an old priest to exorcise whatever curse was put on that location. Since Le Chardonnay closed more than a decade ago, itâ€...

Grub Buddy
Food expert Chow, Baby reviews local restaurants of the non-chain variety, and knows every aspect of the food industry. Chow, Baby has a keen eye and superior nose and has worked at fine dining establishments as a server, cook,...

The Australian lamb chops with risotto and blueberry chutney are popular at The Wild Mushroom. Lee Chastain

Wild Wild Western

The Western-modern Wild Mushroom is worth the flood of orange cones.
Weatherford’s culinary advances over the past few years now include several white- tablecloth establishments, including the upscale-casual Wild Mushroom Steakhouse and Lounge. The three-year-old restaurant is located off the ...


Eating for You

Chow, Baby is the people’s food critic. Just think of me as your light in dim places, (or sometimes a canary for your culinary coal mine). This week I thought I’d dip into the ol’ mailbag and go where ye send me. As it tu...

Beneath this unassuming marquee is a gateway to some successful Thai fare. Chase Martinez

Thai in Bloom

Proof of (Culinary) Life

Chow, Baby
Not that long ago, Chow, Baby was a road warrior, constantly jumping in its topless Jeep to see where the road would take me. Age and neurosis have taken their toll, and I’m less inclined to throw caution to the wind these da...

Pacific Tang

Nothing’s hoity-toity about this small local chain, but everything’s solid.
In any category of ethnic food, places that hew to their original tradition are usually better bets than the Americanized versions of same. But sometimes, ethnic and Americanized can be a good combo — as with Tang’s Pacific...
