Bits and crumbs

The Ballantyne location of Eddie's Place closed Oct. 25, but the Cotswold location (617 S. Sharon Amity Road) is still open, and will honor gift certificates.

Chipotle and famous chef/TV personality Jamie Oliver have a deal for you that will help Oliver's "Food Revolution," aimed at teaching folks to cook and eat fresh foods: Dress up as "a horrific processed food item" (see suggestions at right) and go to a Chipotle between 6 p.m. and closing time Oct. 31, and you get a burrito for $2. All proceeds up to $1 million go to Oliver's Food Revolution group.

Cantina 1511 at 1511 East Blvd. is back open after a tree crushed air-conditioning units.

The King's Kitchen has a new website: The restaurant, at 129 W. Trade St. in uptown Charlotte, works to help relieve hunger in the community, and a press release says it recently donated $4,000 to the Harvest Center in Charlotte for food coolers.

Chef Brett McKee of 15 North Roadside Kitchen in Charlotte, and the original in this series, 17 North Roadside Kitchen in Charleston, will cook at the James Beard House in New York for the eighth straight year; go here for details.

If you are going to go to all the trouble of dressing in costume, the least they can do for you is give you a free food item, like Chick-Fil-A does. Still having to pay $2 for a burrito is not worth it.

I find the costume gimmick highly ironic given the fact that Chipolte is owned by McDonald's, home of the processed foods they want people to dress up as for discounted burritos.

Actually, McDonalds hasn't owned anything of Chipotle since 2006.
