As Food Goes By

The original title of the classic movie "Casablanca" was "Everybody Comes To Rick's." Although I'm glad the title changed, the fact is the original title told the story. Everybody in the movie who came to Casablanca did pay at least one visit to Rick's.

And everybody who comes to San Diego should pay at least one visit to Lou & Mickey's.

You can't miss it. It's across the street from the San Diego Convention Center and right next door to the Padres' new ballpark, Petco Park. While you are there, savoring delicious food and stellar service, you may also enjoy an exciting adventure. That's my friend Michelle pictured in a 2004 photo, cozying up to Mark Harmon, star of CBS's hit show, NCIS, during one of his visits to Lou & Mickey's.

With all due respect to the late, great Paul Henreid, there's just no contest when it comes to which leading man I'd rather bump into in a cafe. Here's looking at you, Mark. Hopefully, on my next stop at Lou & Mickey's.
