Went to the soft opening of Sailor Jack's (previously The Foundry) over the weekend. Tried three apps: tempura oyster mushrooms (mushrooms lost in a bit too much breading, but amazing dipping sauce), fried clams (bit too salty) and crab hushpuppies (we all agreed these were fantastic). Crab Louie is something we would all go back for during warmer months. Clam chowder a bit thick and too smokey for two of us, while the other thought it was perfect. Lobster rolls were solid, but didn't knock our socks off. Two types of fish and chips (frites) that were very good. Lastly, the lobster corn back had a good amount of lobster but the corn bake (stuffing) was so rich it overwhelmed the dish.

Prices were good - almost everything under $20, and a lot of non-seafood like fried chicken and prime rib sandwich that sounded great. They still have some tweaks to do, but once they get everything honed I would definitely be back for the hushpuppies and Crab Louie.

I noticed this fencing being stored by the garage around the spot where the hotel portion of Westport Manor is to be built (also saw a construction dumpster). I haven't been to Westport on a weekend night since they started closing the closing the streets, so maybe this fencing is used for that. Or perhaps it will be used for the construction of Westport Manor?

It seems like things have been quiet lately regarding that project. Anyone hear anything?

Hearing east Westport is having a pretty major mouse and rat problem right now. I’m assuming it’s due to the XO building finally being demolished.

It's amazing what disruption can do. A landlord emptied a former tenant's belongings from a vacant house across the street during the spring a couple of years ago, after poison had been put out a few days before. Suddenly my garage was full of dead mice who had climbed into every nook and cranny and died.

I had never had a mice problem in the years I've been in my house, but I learned never to use poison. Only traps. My neighbor used to work renovating old houses, and he said they would find all sorts of dead animals/skeletons in the walls. He said owners often used poison to kill rodents and they would crawl into the walls and die. He said always use traps so you find the bodies.

My point is telling this story is to educate anyone reading this that if you are ever living near a building or house is being demolished, immediately go buy rodent traps and set them out to catch the invaders before they die in your walls or basement.

This is probably the most morbid and depressing thing I’ve ever read on here.

The old Berbiglia on Westport Rd is being razed today for the QT expansion.

Beignet in River Market adding 2nd location at the doomed Huddle House location but this menu looks to be expanded. I wonder how the worlds largest Ramen place does on that strech as well as the Wing place. I really missed his old restaurant he had in the Crossroads (Nica's) so I'm hoping its more like that

That is a bold move - hopefully they can improve the space. The 2nd Cancun Fiesta Fresh didn't seem to do to well in that spot.

I'm embarassed to say i've never been to the Beignet place in the RM.
