New Belgium Is No Joke on April Fools; Look at Cafe B

LGD? Booze whisperer Todd A. Price reports that Colorado's finest craft beer New Belgium will finally land in town on April Fools Day. The Avenue Pub (1732 St. Chaz Ave.) will host a tasting event Monday, April 1, starting at 5 p.m. More tastings are already planned at the Blind Pelican and Bulldog. []

NOLA? From J'anita's/Warehouse Grille's Craig Giesecke's latest column: "One of the main issues faced by any budding restaurant operation can be the most challenging, controversial and oft-criticized or loved aspect of the entire business. It is the pride or bane of the place, often within the same day, and it is the post on which the entire hat of the business rests. It is, of course, The Menu." [UptownMessenger]

METAIRIE? The Gambit's Kat Stromquist takes a look at Cafe B this week: "In the heart of Old Metairie, you could easily miss Cafe B (2700 Metairie Road), one of Ralph Brennan's newest ventures. Only the valet parking stand might tip you off to this storefront bistro, where executive chef and general manager Chris Montero brings a city sensibility to a rarified neighborhood." [Gambit]
