Scalibut is Back, A Treme Takedown, And More

NOLA— Ian McNulty digs into a Thanksgiving po' boy at Parkway, the chicken and dumplings at Martinique Bistro and the scalibut at GW Fins, noting: "Chef de cuisine Mike Nelson put together the words scallop and halibut before he actually put the two seafoods together for what has since grown into a signature dish at this upscale fish house."

TREME— The Atlantic has a pretty harsh takedown of HBO's Treme this week: "The show's food-themed storyline... becomes nearly unwatchable when Janette moves to New York to work in the kitchens of nonfictional culinary hotshots like Eric Ripert and David Chang... her awkward interactions with these real-life chefs consistently distracts. Even when Janette isn't stuck in wooden conversations with non-actors, her character's dramatic stakes diminish as the show fixates on restaurant-industry realism." The final season premieres this coming Sunday, December 1. [Atlantic]

QUARTER— SoBou and MOTAC's latest installment of their monthly cocktail series— featuring the talented mixologist, Abigail Gullo, rending holiday friendly classic cocktails— has been moved from it's originally scheduled date December 2 as to not conflict with the Saints game. It will now take place on December 9 at SoBou, 5 p.m. $35 includes drinks and snacks. Call (504) 552-4095 for info. Who Dat and carry on. [EaterWire]

MID CITY— Gizzard Alert: Toups' Meatery has just changed up their menu with some winter time Cajun comfort. New entree additions include a shrimp stew (head-on in a dark roux, ya heard), short ribs, pork belly, and there's an insanely decadent chicken gizzard salad with cornbread croutons and ham on the apps side.

NOLA— In case you're wondering, the real estate bloggers over at Movoto believe the French Quarter, Marigny, and even Uptown are more "trendy" than the Bywater, according to this listicle of The 10 Trendiest Neighborhoods in New Orleans," based on criteria such as most restaurant, coffee shops, and bars per capita, among other things.
