Front Porch: TV chef revamps restaurant menu

Duck leg salad. Onion soup. Meatloaf. Butterscotch pudding.

That’s what’s for dinner — and it’s tasty, according to some bloggers who previewed the new menu at Prohibition Gastropub. The place got revamped last week by reality TV chef Gordon Ramsay and his “Kitchen Nightmares” ninjas.

Locals who have avoided eating the yucky fare at the old Prohibition now can’t wait to get a table. The pub is accepting reservations for the grand reopening at 5 p.m. Tuesday. The reopening has been delayed several times, but owner Darlene “Rishi” Brown said this time it finally will happen.

Get your Holidoo: It’s called Holidoo – emphasis on the last part of the word.

The Woodland Park Zoo is selling festively packaged Holidoo product, which is compost for gardens and lawns featuring manures from two dozen of the zoo’s herbivore species.

The Holidoo is available in 4-gallon and 2-gallon containers and pints for stocking stuffers. It can be bought at Woodland Park Zoo’s two ZooStore locations: ZooStore West at Phinney Ave. N. between N. 55th and N. 56th streets and ZooStore South at N. 50th St. and Fremont Ave. N., both in Seattle.

The ZooStores hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. The ZooStore West is open from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. daily through Jan. 1 to accommodate WildLights shoppers. For more information, call the Poop Line at 206-625-POOP.
