Extra Mustard and Hold the Mayans

CHOW, BABY
If you believe all the Mayan calendar hype, then you may suspect that we don’t have much more time on this planet. I don’t understand why people are putting so much stock into the Mayan’s prophecy — they have a terrible...


As the Cheese Fries Surprise indicates, Rodeo Goat is less a bar and more of a gourmet comfort-food gem. Willex Tindell

Get To The Goat

Best burger? Rodeo Goat’s got a claim.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Rodeo Goat features 59 beers in bottles or on tap. So Rodeo Goat’s a bar, right? Well, the new West 7th Street venture also specializes in burgers — the menu lists 14 — and a handful of appetizers and desserts. And three ...

CHOW, BABY
Why I volunteered to cook this Thanksgiving is beyond me. Maybe it was the tacos. Last month, a friend from Boston was in town, and he swears he can’t get a decent taco up there (duh), so we gorged on tacos de pastor ($1.25 e...

Eating for You

CHOW, BABY
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...



Restaurants Should Charge For Water

Jeff Prince
A Las Vegas restaurant is catching flak for charging .50 cents for water and not telling customers about it until they get their bills, according to this Delish.com story. I’ve got no problem with restaurants charging ext...


Happy Bubbles to Me

Chow, Baby
Birthdays are always a little bittersweet for Chow, Baby. On the one hand, I’m a year older, and another year has passed in which I didn’t realize my dream of becoming a movie star-astronaut-fireman-novelist-scientist-profe...
