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.
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.
