Why is this man licking his lutjanus campechanus?

Driving by the the space that once housed Greenberries and Antone’s Market I noticed the location is about to get new life, this time as Ruggles Green.

The banner on the building reads like a mish mash of pizza, sandwiches, salads and other “fast gourmet” snoozers. Not that I don’t want a place to grab some pseudo upscale fast food when I am on the go (actually I don’t), but because this is the 87th time Ruggles tries to develop a mass market concept that can be easily franchised. None of them work.

This time won’t be any different. Ruggles Green will face the same fate as Antone’s Market. Why go there when Whole Foods is right across the street? Legacy Restaurants would have been better off handing the space over to Alex Padilla, so he can finally put the batter back on the chile rellenos at Ninfa’s on Navigation and do something productive with his culinary talents.

Bruce Molzan wooing a red snapper

If you aren’t already titillated by this Ruggles Green news, consider going to the Ruggles web site anyway. The Bruce Molzan  Next Food Network Star audition video is priceless in all sorts of ways and should put to rest all doubts about how he feels about overfishing. Enjoy.
