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 on The NOLA Brewing Tap Room in the Irish Channel, Ray and Margo entertain members of New Orleans restaurant community. Their guests bring along a friend, a +1. Anything can happen.
Molly Kimball is New Orleans' highest profile proponent of eating healthy, but she's no tyrant.
Molly is happy for you to go to your favorite restaurant and order your favorite meal. She also believes that your favorite restaurant can make your favorite meal with no white carbs - meaning without or with less white sugar or white flour.
Putting her money where her mouth is, literally (kind of) Molly's crusade Eat Fit NOLA works with New Orleans' restaurant chefs to craft their same awesome meals without the fat-and-heart-attack quotient. Over 40 NOLA restaurants, including Brennan flagships Commander's Palace and Cafe Adelaide, are on board and the program is catching on in commercial kitchens city wide.
Molly's +1 is her visiting friend Jocelyn Lockwood who, on her first night back in New Orleans in almost a year, bravely agreed to come on Midnight Menu +1.
If you think you've seen Jocelyn and Molly before, you have: they were together on WGNO TV's Get The Skinny when Jocelyn lived in New Orleans.
Around a year ago Jocelyn and her husband sold up and went travelling, hitting hundreds of hot and not so hot spots around the world. On the way they sampled all kinds of food, including stingray, whale, and reindeer! And that's not the weirdest or most disturbing food incident on their trip. That one occurred when Molly and her husband Brad joined Jocelyn and her husband for a romp through Vienna.
Molly had no idea when she gamely volunteered Jocelyn as her +1 that she'd have to sit through re-living the Vienna schnitzel-tossing incident.
All that and a whole lot more on this fun and food-fact filled low-fat Eat Fit edition of Midnight Menu +1.
