Do They Even Know About Hand-Pulled Noodles in Atlanta?

Dedicated readers know we have closely followed the local celebrity chef battle affectionately known as "Chow v. Chau."

Now this epic skirmish over.....what exactly?.... has journeyed through the court system all the way to the 11th Circuit!

But will the boys in Atlanta get the super-chic, hot Miami Beach restaurant scene and the subtle nuances involved in slowly pulling on one's noodle, when what passes for gourmet Chinese in Atlanta is General Tso's chicken and a cold Coca-cola?

Let's see:
Michael Chow is a chef who credits himself with introducing “high-end Chinese cuisine in a fine dining setting to the west” through the “Mr Chow” restaurants he opened across the country, first in Beverly Hills, California in 1974, then on 57th Street in New York City in 1979, next in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City in 2006, and most recently in Miami Beach, Florida in 2009.  These restaurants serve a number of “signature dishes,” have distinctive décor and feature a performance of sorts, referred to as the “noodle show,” where a member of the staff makes fresh noodles by hand for the patrons.
The "noodle show" -- they do get it!


  1. Meet me at midnight!

  2. A little too much noodle pulling going on for my taste. Bitches.

  3. General Tso's chicken-- yum! I always order it minus the broccoli. I don't care for broccoli.

  4. Thinking this is more interesting than reading about the law or noodle pulling. I am very liberal but this is one thing I do not understand:

    Don't try to understand. We all have our own path. Just live and let live.

    Other people seem strange to me. I seem strange to other people. So long as we treat others with respect and kindness diversity is a strength.

  6. I like the reporter's interview with a rubber doll replicant:

    11:12 You are making a big mistake not ordering the broccoli. Broccoli is an excellent source of fiber and as a cruciferous vegetable has big anti-oxident and anti-cancer properties. As you get older you have an increased need for fiber to avoid potentially deadly conditions like diverticulosis.

    In sum, eat your broccoli.


  8. When I perform my noodle show in a restaurant by putting my noodle in my hand, I always seem to get in trouble. What gives?

My Kind of Federal Judge!

Sure we have Scott Rothstein and his lovely Tom James clothier Romina Sifuentes, but Louisiana has ED LA judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.:
A federal judge from Louisiana who had run up big gambling debts routinely solicited money and gifts from lawyers with cases before his court, Congressional investigators said Tuesday as the House opened impeachment hearings in the judge’s case. The judge, G. Thomas Porteous Jr. of Federal District Court, had more than $150,000 in credit card debt by 2000, mostly for cash advances spent in casinos, investigators said. Judge Porteous’s requests for cash became so frequent that one New Orleans lawyer said he started trying to dodge the judge.“He began to use excuses that he needed it for tuition, he needed it for living expenses,” the lawyer, Robert Creely, told a House Judiciary Committee task force. “I would avoid him until I couldn’t avoid him anymore.”
Mr. Creely said he and his law partner, Jacob Amato, gave Judge Porteous an estimated $20,000 o…

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

I drank a shit-ton of bourbon last night. Enough to float a battleship.

My head hurts. But not as much as my heart.

We lost another lawyer over the weekend. Not someone who will receive facebook accolades and other public claims of friendship and statements that he shaped and changed lives and careers. Just a guy who did the best he could with what he had. Every day. And he did very, very well to be the best person he could be. 
Richard Seavey was a profoundly private person. In his 49 years, he walked through more than his share of trials and tribulations, mostly asking for no help, leaning on no one. 

Richard was a fantastic lawyer. He could try a case. He could "litigate" a case. He could mediate and settle a case. He was nuanced. He bent but never broke. The blustery Miami lawyer never scared him. To the contrary, he found humor in it, studying it like a science project. Richard never got too high or too low. He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
