On The Line at Upperline – Midnight Menu +1 – It’s New Orleans
Chef David Bridges is so high energy that he makes Midnight Menu +1 co-host Ray look practically normal.
David’s career has been a wild ride, from life on a Lear jet catering to the rich and famous to his current prestigious gig at one of New Orleans’ finest restaurants, Upperline.
At one point David had a restaurant in Shreveport Louisiana which was known for its fine food until it became even more widely known as the place Chef David came out of the kitchen to kick out actor Tom Cruise. As you can imagine from these pictures, David tells this story in a way that no mere reporting could capture.
Regular listeners to Midnight Menu +1 might notice something wrong with these photos. There is no +1 – the mystery guest the guest brings with them. Every guest that is except Chef David. A little lack of pre-planning is not going to get in his way though – Chef David plays the part of both himself and his sous chef, Pedro.
This is one of the wackiest Midnight Menu +1 shows we’ve made. Chef David Bridges is an amazingly talented, award winning chef, a larger than life character, and funny as hell.
