The latest contentious chapter in the Tangredi Restaurants saga was only the tip of the spatula this week on Bites. From a somewhat ironically appreciated Southern staple to a close encounter with ant eggs, from a round-up of Irish restaurants and St. Paddy's Day specials to a new Greek joint that's the toast (or pita) of the East Side, Bites continues its search for the liveliest, freshest food news in Nashville. Some highlights of the past week:
• Carrington Fox, a.k.a. Fearless Leader, launched her ambitious project to chart the city's dining specials for every night of the week. Get ready to add Wing Wednesday to your calendar.
• Bellevue lost one of its dining destinations this week when WildWood Oak Fired Kitchen closed its doors.
• Nicki P. Wood, who covers the waterfront for Bites, hipped you to the amazing spicy-sweet Vietnamese catfish special on the weekend menu at Miss Saigon.
• Lee Stabert took a swing at the staff of life by making her own no-knead whole grain bread, and evidently tapped into a citywide network of DIY breadmakers.
• Jack Silverman sez: Whatever that eggplant-ground-beef thingamajig is that Zavós serves, get it.
