El Mirador and the Other Ones With the Free Nibbles

This week's dining column features El Mirador, the Mexican eatery adjacent to K&S Market on Nolensville Road. In my vernacular, El Mirador will forever be The One With Beans & Slaw, because that simple salvo of refried beans and zesty citrus-laced cabbage is what stood out most in my experiences there.

Nothing sets the mood like nice free appetizers--or amuse bouches, as the fancy places call the really teensy ones.

Chips and salsa, of course, is the mother of all freebies. Taqueria Vallarta in Old Hickory opens with a memorable plate of salty grilled jalapenos. Noshville has free pickles, but you have to ask these days. Same with the biscuits at Cracker Barrel. Ombi used to treat you to a basket of truffled popcorn.

Who else offers notable no-charge noshes?
