RESTAURANT REVIEW

Taste the difference of a bona-fide cantina


F
or as long as Mexican-food
fans have debated the pre-
cise boundaries that sepa-
rate traditional Mexican from, say,
Tex-Mex, they also have kicked
around the term “real” Mexican
food, as opposed to, well, “chain”
Mexican food, the kind usually
plated at quick-built, American-
owned faux cantinas that tend to
pop up near shopping centers.
Not that there’s anything wrong
with those.
In fact, if we judge simply by the
crowds at or the longevity of such
local favorite haunts as La Tolteca,
for example, we’d say plenty of
folks put up no fussy protest about
the origins of their spicy, tortilla-
centric favored fare. In fact, they
might even prefer the taste and am-
bience of what the chains offer.
Yet, as we approach Cinco De
Mayo, that party-hardy, Battle of
Puebla commemorative holiday
that means so much more here in
the states than it does in Mexico,
we sought to find a nice, lesser-
known compromise, a cross be-
tweenabustlingandbona-fide,mu-
sic-filled cantina and a quiet neigh-
borhood joint where Mexican
kitchen masters proudly but quiet-
ly serve the food of their homeland. DON CAREY/THE TIMES LEADER

‘Kill the Irishman’

veland. ★★★
It’s an intriguing bit of
brutal but little-known
history — the number of bombings and killings the film says took
place in Cleveland at the time make it seem more like Beirut — and
“Kill the Irishman” is never dull. But director/co-writer Jonathan
Hensleigh tries to cram so much into well under two hours that the
film often feels rushed and uninvolving.
Ray Stevenson does a serviceable job of portraying the two-fisted
Greene, and there are some gripping touches, as when a flunky
proves how committed he is to Greene’s cause. But a portly Val Kil-
mer as a local police investigator and narrator seems wedged into
the script, as if Hensleigh had too much ground to cover and didn’t
want the audience to identify too much with Greene.
Other casting choices — Fionnula Flanagan, Tony Lo Bianco,
Paul Sorvino, Vincent D’Onofrio – are cool little nods to gangster
movies and TV shows past, though Christopher Walken as mobster
Shondor Birns doesn’t have a lot to do.

CELEBRITY Q&A UNIVERSAL SUDOKU JUMBLE


BY R.D. HELDENFELS BY MICHAEL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

Makeover show

Q. What happened to “Extreme
Makeover: Home Edition”? At first
my family thought the “replacement”
show was just temporary but it’s
been several weeks now and what’s
up with Ty and the gang?

A. As has been noted here before,


the broadcast network television sea-
son runs more than 40 weeks, from
September into May, and most of
those networks’ shows make around
22 episodes. As a result, the broad-
casters either have to air a lot of re-
runs or fill time slots with substitute
programs. “Secret Millionaire” has
been filling the “Home Edition” time
slot since March 6 and had its sea-
son finale April 10. “Home Edition”
returned with new episodes on
April 17. Both those moves were an-
nounced before “Secret Millionaire”

even premiered on ABC.

Q. Do you know who plays


Howard’s overly open, dare I say,
loud-mouthed, yet unseen mother
on the CBS show “Big Bang
Theory?”

A. That’s Carol Ann Susi, an actress


who has a lot of TV credits where
she is also seen. You may recall her
— or her voice — from “The Boy-
friend,” a 1992 episode of “Seinfeld”
where she plays a woman George
