Anyone been to Bradley Ogden recently?

Husband & I went to B. Ogden a week ago after arrival. We went to lounge and had the $29.00 special, either kicked up burger or kicked up fish & chips, actually. The fish was excellent and best I've had prepared that way. It was "line caught" wild halibut.
The dessert sucked & I suppose it was just me. It was Butturscotch pudding & maccaroons. Chef had flavored it with Scotch & it tasted SOUR. Of course, I'm not a scotch lover, so someone else might have loved it!
It was a good meal for first night there, but I wouldn't repeat it.
We both thought STACK at Mirage was great & the specials were &29 too. The steak superb! Three course meals and deals we will NEVER see in Vegas again, so we took full advantage of it, including D.B's at Wynns.

Where's the good Greek Restaurant in Mobile Al. area??

We live in Daphne for 2 years and have yet to find a great Greek place. I thought about going to the church in Malbis and asking there! We've been to the greek festivals, but perhaps we are spoiled with Greek town in Detroit. But, I'd surely like a little flaming cheeses and good Greek cooking! Price is no object! Thanks!

Balsalmic vinegar

Husband just spent $50 on 8 oz. 4 leaf. Says it STILL isn't right stuff. Says it isn't the thick rich kind he wants. hmmmm Any suggestions?
