Louie's gets new executive chef and prepares an outdoor cafe


March 31, 1995|By Elizabeth Large

Louie's the Bookstore Cafe has a new executive chef and a new menu. The new chef is David Sarfaty, who worked at the now-defunct World CafeXBar and the Mt. Vernon Club. The new menu emphasizes vegetarian and low-fat dishes, but regulars will still find their favorite burgers and luscious desserts, all made on the premises.

Louie's will open its outdoor cafe this Thursday with a barbecue on the parking lot starting at 5:30 p.m. Mambo Combo will provide live music.

* Phillips Harborplace's all-you-can-eat seafood buffet has just reopened after being closed two months for renovation (to make the buffet space larger). It's open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and costs $14.95 for lunch, $21.95 for dinner.

* How timely: The smoking ban is everywhere in the news, and Donna's at the BMA is offering stylish little matchbooks with note paper inside instead of matches. (Well, you can't use the black paper napkins to scribble little notes, can you?)

* Overheard at a nearby table: "No restaurant meal should cost more than a medium-priced ceiling fan."
