The EatDrinkTalk podcast welcomes a new sponsor this week, as one of our favorite restaurants, Harvest, jumps on board. In the news, Steve talks about his excellent experience at the Fat Lamb soft opening, featuring incredible and robust flavors. We are glad to hear some news from the Douglass Loop area, where the third local DiOrio’s will open by the end of the year in the spot previously occupied by Cafe Lou Lou.

Just down the street, the sign on the door was all that told regulars at Diamond Station that the bar was closing, and now we’re anxious to hear about a new concept taking its place. We’re also discussing the opening of The Portage House, and have news about a personnel change that has Tarek Hamada leaving Anoosh Bistro for the Belle Nobel group.

After an amazing four decades in the local restaurant industry, Majid Ghavami is shutting down his St. Matthews eatery, and sits down with Steve for a long conversation about his eventful career.

In our favorites segment, we discuss offerings from the Fat Lamb’s kitchen and bar, as well as the famous IguanaRita from Señor Iguanas.
