A Whole Different Enchilada at Local Taco Brentwood

A late shopping trip in vieux Brentwood (the part near Nashville) ran well into dinner time, and DD and I drove and quarreled over Five Guys, Chile Burrito, Peter's Sushi, McAllister;s Deli, Royal Thai.

We cruised past Perch (I had wanted it to be open so badly) and had to turn down Judge Beans because the 15-minute wait for a table was too much for a homicidally hungry teen.

Back to the car, I spotted the back of ... The Local Taco Brentwood! Victory!

We found out that Carrington wasn't kidding when she reported last summer that The Local in Brentwood is a whole other taco stand than the one in Nashville.

The Sylvan Park location is a Baja beach shack, while the one in Brentwood has, like, architecture and design. It's bigger and has more and better parking.

And Deb Paquette was a consultant on the menu. With more entrees and more sides, LT South's offerings veer toward family restaurant, with lots of inventive touches. For instance, the Nashville menu has a chicken enchilada with lemon creme, but on the Brentwood menu, it's smoked chicken.

There's a pumpkin-seed crusted salmon entree on the Brentwood menu, and beet and goat cheese salad, a grilled lamb meatball taco, and Mexican tater tots and ham hock-flavored pintos.

Honestly, I wanted the whole enchilada.
