Grey was taken by some rando with one post in 2013 about a 180 watch :(

It comes from my last name too, so I was p. disappointed.

Start a thread in the Lounge for the Mods to do a name change globally, your names and when you are quoted.

yep. Probably going to spend this afternoon doing that.

Are there even restaurants in Durham, OBOB? :wink:


I'd wager more and better dining options than Charlottesville 8)


Actually, if there's one thing I learned from the endless pamphlets I received from Duke, it's that Durham is "the foodie capital of the south." Propaganda? I think not.

New Orleans would beg to differ.

And until you've had char-grilled oysters from Drago's I'm not sure you can really claim to have lived.

You can't change it in quoted posts, but you just PM a mod if you want to change it.

I had exactly one good meal during my time in New Orleans. It was at Cochon. I'm sure there are other good places there but they are hidden in a mess of terrible shit.

Cochon is amazing. And there's lots of great food you just need to get out of the quarter (although there is good stuff in the quarter too, it's just hidden.)

I figured that might be the case. I was at a conference at that big convention center down there so I was relatively limited in where I went.

You just have to know how to eat the right foods when in town for conventions.

1. Fly in in the morning
2. Po Boy for lunch
3. Drinks and appetizers at the aquarium
4. Famous Celebrity Chef name but never inside restaurant for dinner
5. Hurricanes with oysters around 9 or 10
6. Hand Grenades then hot dogs around 12 or 1
7. Play chess for money
8. Another hot dog, this time loaded around 2 or so
9. Walk down to the Cafe Du Monde, for beignets and coffee and watch the sun rise
10. Then go to your convention meetings, where they serve breakfast
11. Drink lots of bottled water
12. Sleep during the lectures
13. Repeat with step 3

"Cochon" couldn't be a name for a restaurant in Miami because it would mean something entirely different...

Found the absolute most credible source on the matter.

As a northerner living in the south I can appreciate both, but...

I think most "northern cooking" is just borrowed French and Italian food, not that it's not amazing. I guess New England has their own distinctive foods (eg clam chowder and lobster roll, etc.)

The South invented BBQ, which is one of my very favorite things. And here in Texas we take Mexican food, double the amount of meat, remove the vegetables, and drown it in queso, which is also a very good time.

Montreal has the best food hands-down, and Quebec's cuisine it's the closest thing we have to something unique. It's like French food but less pretentious. Quality wise, Tim Hortons is like breakfast-only McDonalds.

The episode of Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown set in Quebec made me want to move there.

To be fair southern cooking has to be borrowed from somewhere too, unless all you eat is succotash and pemmican.

Variety though - can you really eat BBQ/grits/fried mayonnaise every day?
