Chef Donnie Ferneau reports that he's ending lunch service at his upscale Hillcrest restaurant Ferneau and adding a late-night menu, which he'll offer from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Thursday through Saturday. Items on the menu, like an open-faced barbecue short-rib sandwich, tuna nachos, chicken-fried pork tenderloin and shoe-string fries, will be priced lower than dinner entrees, Ferneau says. The new menu goes into effect today (Sept. 4). Ferneau says he'll also host live music Thursday through Saturday and a movie night in his private dining room on Thursdays.
