Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Beef tartare
$$$$, Modern, Full Bar, American, New American, French Quarter
"Beef tartar is one of those classic dishes that, if you put it on your menu at this point, it has to be super amazing or you look like an asshole. Chef Daniel Heinze is bold enough to take the challenge and is nice enough to make us all onion rings to boot. Well done."
cannoli's
$$$$, Modern, Full Bar, American, New American, French Quarter
"@jjsleasman has been asking me for 3.5 years to make him cannoli. For his last weekend @mccradys he also asked for them to be a tower. 😎 We will miss him at the restaurant, but maybe most of all his ideas for staff meals. Props to @richardcapizzi for teaching me the cannoli game, and my mom for sending me her muffuletta recipe.n"
