Three Pickles Sub Sandwiches has taken over the former Chio’s location on Canon Perdido. Although considerably less pink, it’s still a satisfying substitution for the midday crowds mourning the loss of the famous lunch box. 128 E. Canon Perdido St., #A.
Don’t stop ’til you get enough: Restaurant Nu’s chef David Cecchini is at it again. His latest cooking class, next Wednesday, features stews, ragoûts, and fondues, so be prepared for a night of slow cooking that is oh-so-worth-the-wait: veal cheeks, duck confit, and lobster fondue with truffles. If that’s not decadence, I don’t know what is. Wednesday, April 19, 5:30 p.m. at the Old Masini Adobe; $75 per person. Reserve your spot by calling 695-8464 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
