Fleeting Delicacy

anyone  that has known  me for any amount of time knows of my love for pears,(and my distaste for punctuation and capitalization but that is another story), but not pears any time of year only during the true pear season. now is pear season. out of season they are only silicone impostors filled full of lies and misguided promises. now while the flesh is firm yet yielding and the fruit full of sweet nectar and perfume designed to attract the birds and the bees, is the time to enjoy these gifts of late summer..

well summer here has started to crack. its impenetrable walls of heat and humidity have opened a bit and into this chasm falls the  pear with its heralding of cooler weather, outdoor activities and vitality.

i think that since the season is short and that knowing it will end soon and i wont enjoy a pear in its peak perfection for another 11 months i try to enjoy them now as much and in as many variations as i can.

then they are gone.

they will live in memory on a pedestal.

till next year.

What Michael Stipe of R.E.M. had to say about our place

After a recent trip to New Orleans Michael Stipe,  the lead singer of R.E.M., had these nice words to say about us;

“Ok, this place…they have the best vegetables in any New Orleans restaurant, an outdoor patio, and an amazing wine list. They have incredible meat and fish dishes too. This is a great restaurant to get away from downtown, and one of the most inspired menus I’ve seen anywhere. The food and produce is fresh, fresh, fresh, and they accentuate the freshness with the preparation and presentation. The only thing I will say is that the portions are HUGE!!! Bring some friends and plan on having one of the best meals of your life”

he posted a complete review of his trip here on Gwyneth Paltrow’s news blog. you can read the entire posting here
