Let the competition begin! Lafayette's own Iron Chef event was held at Zeus Downtown on the evening of Wednesday, April 18. The TV show Iron Chef is more of a sporting event than it is a cooking show. Lafayette's version of Iron Chef was both! Nidal Balbeisi, owner of Zeus downtown arranged two skillful opponents, Chef Happy and Judge Haik, to engage in a duel. Everyone who could not attend will be pleased to know their winning concoctions will be served at Agave, located on Vermilion Street downtown. I overheard the Old World Mexico-style restaurant will open at the end of May, and I can't wait! Party Girl was asked to sample and critique its traditional Mexican cuisine and selection of a dozen kinds of margaritas. (Tough work, I know, but someone's gotta do it.) I wasn't the only critic in the room and every critic around me agreed that it was nearly impossible to name which flavor of margaritas was the best. But my favorite appetizer and entrÃ©e were the ceviche delmar and the portobello Vera Cruz. With an incredible turnout that night, I'm sure Nidal's new place is going to be the talk of downtown Lafayette.
