After the flood, and the summer of recovery; after the second consecutive summer garden tomato failure; after Capitol Grille chef Tyler Brown's big news; Jeremy's new look at tayst; Arnold's turn in the spotlight; after the closings that broke our hearts — well, it was an exhausting summer.
But there's so much else on the horizon. Bella Napoli, Table 3, Fish & Co., MacK and Kate's, Pinkberry.
This late-season watermelon, grown in Crossville and sold at the reopened, post-flood Farmer's Market, is a last summer hurrah. We were happy to crack it open, a last, sad wave to summer's end. It was a bit overripe, but that's nothing a little vodka and limeade can't fix.
What went right, and wrong, this summer in your dining life?
