Ray Cannata has eaten at over 750 New Orleans restaurants, so he knows a thing or two about hanging out. Margo Moss has turned Ted's Frostop from a greasy spoon into a considerably less greasy but not quite silver spoon. When the sun goes down and the ghosts come out at Grille the Hill, the non existent Uptown restaurant next to Monkey Hill bar, Ray and Margo entertain members of New Orleans restaurant community. Their guests bring along a friend, a +1. Anything can happen.
When Margo's away, Ray will play, by inviting his friend and filmmaker, Dylan Field Turner.
Not ones to wait around, Ray and Dylan waste no time in welcoming our guest, Dave Wright, owner and head Chef at Del Fuego Taqueria. Dave talks about how Del Fuego serves regional food, taking the cooking styles from various parts of Mexico. He also talks about coming to New Orleans for an internship at the Culinary Institute of America and, like so many, never leaving. He also brought some of Fuego's signature cocktails, and who better to serve cocktails than Dave's plus one, Debbie Shatz.
Debbie, who seriously, doesn't work out, gets her exercise tending bar at 45 Tchoup serves us some amazing cocktails, all of them named after some classic, and not so classic, films. So listen now if you've ever wanted to know the Spanish title for Firestarter.
