Two line cooks decide to open their own restaurant in New Orleans in the second book in the Rickey and G-Man series by novelist Poppy Z. Brite. New Orleans natives Rickey and G-man are lifetime friends and down-and-out line cooks desperate to make a quick buck. When Rickey concocts the idea of opening a restaurant in their alcohol-loving hometown where every dish packs a spirited punch, they know they're on their way to the bank. With some wheeling and dealing, a slew of great recipes, and a few lucky breaks, Rickey and G-man are soon on their way to opening Liquor, their very own restaurant. But first they need to pacify a local crank who doesn't want to see his neighborhood disturbed, sidestep Rickey's deranged ex-boss, rein in their big-mouth silent partner before he runs amok, and stay afloat in a stew of corruption in a town well known for its bottom feeders. A manic, spicy romp through the kitchens, back alleys, dive bars, and drug deals of the country's most sublimely ridiculous city, author Poppy Z. Brite masterfully shakes equal parts ambition, scandal, cocaine, and murder, and serves Liquor straight up, with a twist.… (mere)

The Liquor series of novels will make you feel hungry a lot, want to visit New Orleans, and make you fall in love with G-Man and Rickey. Food features heavily throughout the series as the chef couple at the heart of of the novel open their own restaurant with the conceit of every dish containing some kind of liquor - hence the title. But naturally, there's obstacles - from local cranks, ex-bosses, and the corruption that thrives in the city. The fact that the two main characters are a gay couple is almost incidental, in a really pleasing way. It's not made the focus of the novel, nor is it ignored and passed over. Well worth reading. ( )

I hadn't read anything by Poppy Z. Brite in a while because she had written something about a serial killer and I wasn't interested. She has left the horror genre to write about gay men in a less sinister tone. Liquor turned out to be the second of a not yet complete trilogy about two young men in New Orleans who become chefs and restaurateurs. The descriptions of food are lovely and the story is lively and interesting. I've never been to New Orleans so it was nice to take a little trip there in my mind. She does veer back into creepy description, especially when describing how a chefs feet feel at the end of a busy night. (stinking rotting stubs... yummy!) (October 04, 2004)

I've been planning on reading this book since it came out (yep, I guess six years is about an average lag-time for me to get around to reading something.)
Of course I heard all about what a shocking departure this was from her earlier writing, blah blah...
Well, it's really not. (Shocking, or a departure).
No, it's not a horror novel, but the writing style is the same, and her protagonists are still two cute gay boys in New Orleans. This couple just happen to be chefs.
Obviously Poppy Brite found the world of her husband (a chef) interesting - and it is. It's a really charming, fun book with a fascinating view into the world behind the dining room. Wouldn't mind reading the next in the series. ( )

G-Man et Rickey vivent à la Nouvelle Orléans, seule ville où l'on peut boire de l'alcool dans la rue aux États-Unis. Ce jeune couple gay a toujours travaillé dans des restaurants médiocres en tant que cuisiniers. sans le sous, ils viennent d'inventer un nouveau concept de restaurant où tous les plats auraient pour ingrédient un alcool. Leur chance : Lenny, riche restaurateur va investir et les aider de bien des façons. Leur problème : obtenir une licence pour vendre de l'alcool alors qu'un vieux du quartier s'y oppose et que Mike, ancien manager de Rickey, les déteste à mort...

Extrait p. 292 : « tout au long du mois de mai, vous pouviez encore vous voiler la face et vous dire qu’il ne faisait pas si chaud que cela pour l’instant. Mais en juin, les jours où la température grimpait jusqu’à 32°C avec un taux d’humidité de 90 %, les moustiques qui se mettaient à pulluler, les chenilles à piquer, toutes ces nuisances se coalisaient pour vous faire admettre que vous alliez vous embourber dans la chaleur épaisse d’un nouvel été à la Nouvelle Orléans. » ( )

Liquor’s a fun book about two guys starting a restaurant in New Orleans. There’s lots of delicious food porn in it. By the end of it, you’re ready to jump on the next jet and eat in every restaurant in New Orleans.

There’s some plot about a murder and an antagonist doing occasional mustache twirling, but it doesn’t matter. It’s a sideshow to the love paean to restaurants and good cooking that forms the thrust of the book.

One odd thing is that there is a dearth of female characters. The book does not pass the Bechdel test.

There is no reason for this book to have been sold in Toronto’s Bakka-Phoenix science fiction and fantasy bookstore. There are no supernatural elements in it whatsoever. Bakka’s excuse for selling Christian Cameron’s Tyrant was that there was some shamanism in it. For Poppy Z. Brite’s Liquor, the excuse must be that the author had written some speculative fiction at some point in their career.

Liquor’s a fun read. Pick it up. ( )

It was the kind of October day for which residents of New Orleans endure the summers, sparkling blue-gold with just a touch of crispness, and two old friends were sitting on a low branch of an oak tree in Audubon Park drinking liquor.
