Alright, I did go to Cosmic dog. Very good. I had the Cosmic Dog & asked the owner to give me whatever Alton Brown ate. The owner gave us what he said Alton had on his first visit--which, if you're interested, I characterized as a "little bit of everything."
Never did to BBQ. The wife had an upset stomach... she'd kill me if she knew I wrote that but I did want to leave some sort of explanation given the nature of this forum.
That said, I really liked Hyman's Seafood
if anyone is interested. Highly recommended.
