Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery delivers a taste of Naples (and New York) to the Music Row Roundabout

Pizza is fantastic, and isn't it time we let our children know what good ingredients and good pizza tastes like instead of cheaping out with cardboard dough and a pound of yuck fake mozzarela cheese that will make them fat. Take your kids to DeSanos; it's worth a few extra dollars.

Re: “As another restaurant prepares to exit Green Hills, economics and perception work against creative concepts in the neighborhood

I am new to Nashville, and Greenhills is by far my least favorite part of town. The traffic is senseless, and the landscape is ugly strip, but it's supposed to be "upscale". No thanks.

Re: “Burger Up Cool Springs manages a cozy vibe in a sea of strip malls

I have to say the burger, supposedly the star attraction was not particularly flavorful, and was served look warm
tempature. The floors of the main seating area were also quite sticky.
This was on a Sunday about year and a half ago? Haven't been back since. I assume from this review these issues were resolved? I like the idea and want it to succeed. Lord knows Cool Springs needs more variety. Despire aforementioned reservations we are rooting for Burger Up!

Re: “Five Points Pizza to expand, open late-night slice window

2 average-sized plain slices + a coke to go = $9.00. Waited 25 minutes. Wouldn't have mattered if it took 25 seconds. Some of the worst pizza I've had in this town, and that's saying a lot.
Pass.

I'm sure BUCS's very close relationship with the Frothy Monkey folks has aided and grown their business.

Re: “Burger Up Cool Springs manages a cozy vibe in a sea of strip malls

I too found this review troubling. Not because it mentions the suicide (grow up, kids, it happened), but because it barely mentions food! All I've learned from this review is that the fries and shakes are good. Oh, and the cocktails are "local," which in this self-obsessed city counts as a rave review.

Re: “Burger Up Cool Springs manages a cozy vibe in a sea of strip malls

My daughter and I tried this location and we were not impressed. The burgers tasted funny and the fires were limp and cold. We are moving to 12South this month and perhaps we will give that location a try. I know they are usually packed on the weekends when we have been in the neighborhood but, just about everything is...

Re: “Burger Up Cool Springs manages a cozy vibe in a sea of strip malls

I also will never go to any Burger Up location, bu I stiill think the review is in bad-taste. This is the second to third bad review from Steve. Where is Carrington?

Re: “Burger Up Cool Springs manages a cozy vibe in a sea of strip malls

@westendrail Not sure it's avoidable.

There are many, myself included, who haven't (and won't ever) go back. I think the review in the first place is odd. Why now?

Re: “Burger Up Cool Springs manages a cozy vibe in a sea of strip malls

I have mixed feeling about this review, was it really necessary to rehash that suicide information?

Re: “In an old Franklin pharmacy, Gray's culinary-cocktail formula is both modern and nostalgic

Nice review Carrington. Sounds like another of the establishments moving to the elevated southern theme. I know Benton's bacon is all the rage now but, as much as I've tried to like it I can't. It's so overly smokey that I can't really enjoy the rest of the dish it accompanies. The remainder of the items sound good. I'll have to give them a try the next time I wind my way down to those parts.

Re: “As another restaurant prepares to exit Green Hills, economics and perception work against creative concepts in the neighborhood

I live just outside of Green Hills and I avoid going into the heart of Green Hills if at all possible. It's a nightmare of congestion and rude drivers who have no qualms about blocking entire lanes of traffic or the intersections.

The mall is a big culprit. There is too much mall traffic for one main road through the area to handle. Routinely at the intersection in front of the Hillsboro High gym, people turn left out of the mall, whether there is room or not, and block the intersection for traffic going toward Abbott Martin. That's why on the weekends you'll see traffic going into Green Hills backed up almost to 440 at times. It's utterly stupid.

So I'm not surprised that restaurants are opting not to locate in that area given the traffic challenges.

Re: “As another restaurant prepares to exit Green Hills, economics and perception work against creative concepts in the neighborhood

I agree with others on here, the traffic in that area is BAD! The lights make no sense timing wise and during the day, things can get backed up quite a bit due to people making left turns. But since this is Nashville, nothing will be done and more restaurants will leave there. Oh well, guess the Bluebird will always be around for people

The only thing I eat in Green Hills is Kalamata's. Which, I think, is a gem. Meharry is a genuinely good dude.

Re: “As another restaurant prepares to exit Green Hills, economics and perception work against creative concepts in the neighborhood

I have lived in Green Hills for over 20 years and totally agree with Local Foodie about the left hand turn lanes and the ridiculous number of traffic lights. Of course, I rarely drive on Hillsboro Road and know the many alternatives. The main issue is the lack of anyone taking charge and making the hard decisions to limit left hand turns, not allow traffic lights at virtually every intersection. Another radical idea would be for traffic beginning on Hillsboro going south at Cleghorn become one way and have a circular four lane road beginning at Cleghorn all the way to Hobbs and then Hillsboro becomes one way from Hobbs going north back up to Cleghorn. That would effectively have a circle of four one way lanes all around the mall moving traffic but certainly some slight downside as well. Unless the city or the developers put up some big bucks to connect Cleghorn and Glen Echo by tearing down the CVS and connecting Richard Jones with Abbott Martin by tearing down the Walgreens and Men's Wearhouse, there are not many options that won't cost big bucks.

Re: “As another restaurant prepares to exit Green Hills, economics and perception work against creative concepts in the neighborhood

@Fork, I got the chance to test your statement this morning at 7:34 AM. So, obviously your referenced experience was not on a weekday during school since Hillsboro High has a guarded school zone with 15 MPH speed limit from 6:45-8:30 AM. When I hit that section this morning was backed up from Glen Echo all the way back to Richard Jones... Maybe at 7:30 AM on a Sunday but, not that way on most days during the week.
