This week Helen Freund journeys to St. Rose newcomer Truck Farm Tavern: This new spot form Cowbell's Brack May features "bright and airy farmhouse decor... classic comfort fare and Southern standards... tweaked and reimagined" including a "rich and crispy" fried chicken sandwich, "barbecue porked jammed" mac and cheese, other wonders from the smoker, not to mention boudin balls the size of tennis balls. It's about a twenty minute drive from New Orleans. [Gambit]

Tom Fitzmorris gives THREE STARS to local rotisserie chain Zea: That's right, T-Fitz is finally back with a star rating system, and doles it out one of his favorite go-to spots. "It's pronounced ZEE-ah," T-Fitz schools the masses, "a reference to a Greek word for life and grain," except "they don't serve bread. Why not?" We may never know.  The Dozen Best Dishes include "sashimi-style tuna stack, Southwestern-style crab cakes, double-cooked duck with Thai sauce and the balsamic-glazed salmon... eminently satisfying for this Gourmet Boy."  +2 Hipness Points though Gourmet Boy warns to "avoid the layered hummus concoction, which sounds better than it is."
