I know this should be in the eats forum but is time sensitive,, a buddy - Manuel Arrendondo _will be on this show 10pm EST from his restaurant in Cabo. He has had restaurants in Ajijic Mx, Dallas, Tx and is a master chef. Some of the best food I've ever had is with him, He has a great family (Wife is a lovely Colombian MD) and produces exquisite cuisine.
Give it a watch!

Manuel was on at the end - he's a very elegant guy and looks to me he got the short schrift. He's cooked haute Mexican cuisine in the White House for GHW Bush and his attention to detail is extraordinary.

Been to many places from DDD and some are great, some not so much so. Hell, he went to the Beacon in Spartanburg which is a $h1t hole and some of the worst food you can find.

The Beacon used to be a lot better.

I have eaten at a handful of DDD alums, Pawley's Front Porch in Columbia should get a visit from everyone.

True. Guy went to perfectly franks in Summerville and the tattooed moose in charleston. Both are pretty good.

I've eaten at Pawleys 3 times. First time was pretty good, but the last two were progressively worse. One of these days I'm going back for the 4th and final tiebreaker.

Guy has the best job in the world, that is what I want to do when I retire.

I have been to probably 6 or 7 of the places I have seen on his show, prolly been to a few others but haven't seen them on the show and I have been to some that are deserving of being on the show.

Three weeks ago I ate at a DDD establishment - Big Daddy's BBQ in Fairbanks, AK. I have to say that it was very good food.

Ok finally watched the show.

First off. I want to eat at solomans landing in cabo. That snapper and lobster dish looked delightful and the stuffed French toast.

As for the op's boy. I am not a big fan of sushi but he is a definitely a surgeon who knows what he is doing. I would love to try his stuff someday.

Thanks for clueing me in.

Beats me with that sushi stuff, too. Manuels's cuisine is normally traditional haute Mexican cuisine- yes there is such a thing- that to me is head and shoulders above Bayless. He does small dishes with pork belly or seafood that is extraordinary. I wasn't pleased with the show presentation, but then at least he was on.

Two best DDD visited establishments that I enjoyed were Dixie Supply Bakery and Café and Tattooed Moose, both located in Charleston.

Perfectly Franks was okay. Nothing to get excited about, it's a grilled Nathan hotdog. Pork chop sandwich was okay. Pawley's was disappointing, I guess I expected more.

Two worst: The Beacon and Harold's in Gaffney. Disgusting.
