Charlotte boy, New York City

Sam Talbot, the "Top Chef" Season 2 contestant from Charlotte, has a menu out for Imperial No. 9 at the Mondrian Soho hotel, according to grubstreet.com, which also offers a slide show here. The site dubs it "probably the most out-there design we've seen since ... FoodParc," which is saying something. Crystal chandeliers and mirrored tables are highlights; seafood appears to be hottest (but that chipotle pazole, spelled that way, looks pretty hot to me). The restaurant is at 9 Crosby St.; 212-389-1000.

Good for Sam! We went to grade school/high school together so I am always interested in seeing what he is up to. I think this was a long time in the making...

I know. Hate me, but there will never be a better burger than McDonalds, to me. I f I'm going out to eat...sit down...ambiance, etc....I want something other than a burger. Love me a quarter pounder with cheese!
