Pic of the day

The menu board holder at a local italian eatery:

He used to have a more rotund brother in front of Belvedere's (and later N'awlins), but the brother has been MIA for a few months now.

Hmmm. I can't identify it. Which restaurant is that?

Genovese's Italian Ristorante. Right downtown on Gurley street.

Catalyst said...

Ah, of course. Thanks.

Small World...The other "Fat Chef" ( He may be in L.A.) Was owned by This Guy.

Cool HDR!

Big Sky Chef - I figured as much since Fatso was outside of Belvadere's and N'awlins, which were both owned by the 4 Corner Restaurants folks. And thanks for the link! I didn't realize they had started doing lunch at 129 1/2, so I will be heading over there in the near future to check out their lunch grub. :)

Kitty - Thanks! He's definitely photogenic.

Rich - Thanks! I definitely take that as a compliment coming from the master de HDR. :)

I just heard that Barry is closing El Gato Azul. Seems strange after just reading his blog. Let me know if you hear anything.

Ohhhhh...fantastic Tom!!

Catalyst - I hadn't heard that, but I'm rarely on the bandwagon. :) If he drops El Gato Azul that will leave just 129 1/2 out of the original 4 restaurants...

Chickenbells - Thanks!!
