word is balliceaux closed. hopefully its forever
@RadioWar y u mad tho?
@heyitsphil ha never liked that place. always been treated like crap by the staff for dinner service and solo cups and over priced drinks
@RadioWar Yeah they’re definitely overpriced. I hope they don’t close – but I do hope they get more glassware and lower their prices.
@heyitsphil the sign says they closed for renovations but rumors of a staff walk out are flying around
With Lombardy Market next door, who needs overpriced food? :)
Sorry to disappoint you Radio War, but Balliceaux is not closing; we are closed this week to redo floors and to do minor repairs. While it is like totally awesome of you to hope for people to lose their jobs, the place is reopening this Friday for dinner service and Cam Dinunzio is spinning music after that. Again, sorry to break the bad news…
I don’t want to see them close, but do agree the bar charges too much for what you’re getting.
…BOPST? of “The Bopst Show” fame?
[...] have been spreading that Balliceaux is closed, but they’re just closed for renovations this week. The restaurant will open on Friday evening [...]
I heard that Balliceaux was advertising in the D.C. area for a new chef and that Chef Russell got wind of it and walked out, and that most of the kitchen staff followed him. That true, BOPTS?
Russell got a new gig teaching at Culinard. And after three years in the Balliceaux kitchen (not to mention the decades he spent in Richmond kitchens before that), he pounced at the chance to have humane working hours at a decent wage. Shit, the dude was giddy with excitement that for the first in nearly two decades he will have his weekends off. I wuv the dude and I will miss him (and his excellent food), but shit, this happens all the time in restaurants; only the uninitiated think this simple job change is cause for hysterical alarm. As anyone who has worked a job before knows, every job you have sucks in some way or another of else you wouldn’t call it a job. Having said that though, Russell simply was ready for a change and he made it. And like Russell, Balliceaux will carry on. Will he be missed? Fuck yes, he will be missed, you don’t find a hard working, dedicated and talented motherfucker like him every day, but hey, that’s life. Shit happens and in this case, there was very little feces involved. He simply got a new job. Personally, I hate the motherfucker because I won’t get to see his beautiful ass face on an almost daily basis, but I’m a big boy well versed in the sad and beautiful thing we all share called life in the restaurant business. Again, Balliceaux will carry on with new beautiful ass faces working to not only make a buck, but to offer people good food, music and yummy alcoholic drinks as we’ve, and every other restaurant in the motherfuckin’ world, has and will always do.
I thought Balliceaux had cool live music on weekends after normal dinner hours…what’s with the DJ?

Balliceaux Gets a New Chef
Balliceaux is undergoing a change of command in the kitchen with a new chef, Michael McClure, taking over for Russell Cook, whose last day on the job was Sept. 2. [...] McClure, who is from the Washington-Baltimore area, has a background in French cooking and has worked locally at Chez Max, Bistro Bobette and The Track (now home to Bonvenu), Gratz says.
