Down in the Crescent City, the barricades have gone up along the parade routes; the hotels, bars and restaurants prepare for an influx of humans so great it can only be estimated by measuring the garbage they generate....

Familiarity is a major part of the appeal of the place. It’s easy to remember the location, considering that the restaurant is named after the street on which it lies. I made my first visit to North Point Grill at the bidding of a source, a tough, big-hearted Occupy Winston-Salem regular, who let me interview him while he feasted on tilapia....

It seems like I never make it to a restaurant in time for breakfast. They usually stop serving breakfast by like 9:30 or 10 a.m., and I always end up missing it because I like to sleep in on the weekends....

But this year the Saints kinda suck, mathematically eliminated from the playoffs with nothing left to hope for but a better record next year. Even this last game of the regular season is meaningless, a bout against the 6-9 Carolina Panthers who managed to fare just a little bit worse....

By my count, I’ve written 37 food stories this year in the Chow section — not counting cover stories and columns — and consumed roughly a billion calories in the process. I did it gladly, in the name of journalism, and also because writing about food is one of my favorite things to do....

At first blush, the Biscuit Factory in High Point has a similar look to its fast-food, breakfast-chain brethren, with a drive-thru window, antiquated booths and a condiment station with ketchup packets, napkins and those little jellies that my great-grandmother, when she was still alive, used to fill her purse with....

So, no chorizo for us, but we substitute a house product called “chofu,” which is a tofu-based protein laced with all the appropriate spices. I should say that I don’t really do tofu — I mean, what’s the point? — but I have no serious issues with it. How could I? It’s more or less tasteless and as inoffensive as a low-sodium Saltine....

That’s why I hit Little Richard’s Lexington BBQ the other day, the location on Country Club Road in Winston-Salem on the outskirts of town, which shares a lot with a car wash. It looks like it’s been sitting here for 50 years, though the menu states that it’s only been open since 1991....

But the spread at Ichiban is confounding. Ten separate buffet lines teem with mainly Asian staples, with a separate sushi station and a hibachi menu made to order. This buffet has meatloaf and frog legs, pot roast and pigs in blankets, a raw bar, six preparations of shrimp, three kinds of squid, two different pizzas and three types of ribs....

Ilove grilled-cheese sandwiches. My mom used to make them for me all the time when I was younger. I had to have it on white bread — because I was picky— with two slices of American cheese (but not the kind that came in the plastic wrapping because that’s made with oil and water), and just a little butter for cooking....
