AND ON ST. ARMANDS >>Tommy Bahama is rockin the circle with some new menu changes, including seasonal features that change every month. A favorite of mine is the slow-roasted, red wine demi glaze short ribs with charred Brussels sprouts and cauliflower mash in an Asian broth--oh, Mama! If there's any room left, the pineapple creme brulee is killer, with caramelized pineapple bits on the bottom of a fresh pineapple base.

MORE YUMMY Pssst: Yummy House is planning on expanding the kitchen and offering a small outdoor seating area by fall. Certainly looks like they can use any extra space, since it's still the busiest restaurant in town.

TURN OF HE (SPORTS) PAGE Gone is the local restaurant workers' hangout, the Sports Page. Although the lower Main location will now be the home of condos (hmmm, will they smell like the infamous Sports Page chicken wings?), there are strong rumors that the restaurant's owners have a site already picked out more mid-Main. Good news for all those fans of real roast beef sandwiches and the darn good Buffalo wings.
