Great experiences at Tom's Elite and the new Judge Bean's, disappointment at Watermark and Shintomi--so you told us on last week's Bites open thread, where you gather to sound off every Friday about the good, the bad and the ugly in your week of dining. Been someplace interesting? Found something lacking? Spill it here.
Here's frequent poster Bas, sharing a sentiment echoed by many Bites commenters (including music legend Ed King):
El Mirador is by far the best Mexican in Nashville...no questions about it. Homemade corn tortillas that will make you fall in love with the women in the back making them.
The small plate of beans and cabbage/tomato/carrot salad in lime juice is spectacular..so many different textures & tastes in one.
I've been 3 times and it seems like the food is getting better...
We suspect you'll hear more soon about El Mirador. In the meantime, if you have tips or info to pass along in private, write cfox (at) nashvillescene (dot) com.
