small logo RDCCulinary Tidbits . . . Heston Blumenthal, of The Fat Duck, Bray, Berkshire, England who grew tired of traditional holiday menus has recently tried some culinary experimentation, using ambergris (whale vomit), he also included a dish using the small rodent dormouse (although separately) on that same Special Menu, which has not been seen since the reign of Charles II.

More recently, (yesterday) . . . the enormous space Charlie Trotter’s, Restaurant Charlie, at the Palazzo Resort in Las Vegas closed its doors, due to the economic slowdown, which not only affected the entire city of Las Vegas, but particularly the middle/upscale clientele that “Restaurant Charlie” catered to.
