* Barcelonas Tapas celebrated one dubious year open last weekend. I've heard mixed reviews about their lunch buffet. I missed the tent in their parking lot with food and drink on the house, but hey, congratulations to any business that makes it for a year.
* I heard the Slow Food dinner two weeks ago at Apple Family Farms was a hit even with the dicey weather. (Advice to some of you: Next time, take your own wine.) More at Slow Food Indy.
*A few folks are asking me about Dan Noble, former chef at the Omni (as well as Something Different/Snax and Glass Chimney). Noble has landed at IUPUI's University Place Hotel heading up their food, beverage and on-site restaurants, Chancellor's and The Den.
