Re: “New Details on Deb Paquette's Upcoming Sylvan Park Restaurant: Truss

And, the facebook page for the restaurant just *yesterday* posted a picture of the pre-demolition retail building! Truly out of touch and deceptive.

(I realize it is a link to an Nashville Eater story. However, the person who manages the facebook page should have substituted the garish hole that is on that corner right now).

Re: “New Details on Deb Paquette's Upcoming Sylvan Park Restaurant: Truss

Someone who wants to reference a streetcar/trolley would likely use the words "streetcar" or "trolley." Those words are less obscure than "truss." They even have a sort of cache with certain groups of urban-dwellers that are likely to frequent this restaurant.

The train reference and the old retail building reference belie a restaurant team not yet grounded in the neighborhood. Perhaps they will adapt.

Reference to the train likely is to the streetcar/trolley that used to run through SP, on Nebraska I think.

Re: “New Details on Deb Paquette's Upcoming Sylvan Park Restaurant: Truss

Apparently, "researching Sylvan Park" is done while being driven down 46th Ave at 50 mph by your realtor while in an SUV with dark-tinted windows. I surprised the historically-motivated researchers didn't incorporate the Roundabout/Rock Garden from the early teens in the name.

Re: “New Details on Deb Paquette's Upcoming Sylvan Park Restaurant: Truss

Who is getting paid to do this research? You see train tracks and don't see the train so apparently it doesn't run anymore? That's awesome. Also, looking at the train tracks, where are the trusses? Is she referring to cross ties? Maybe that should have been the name, Cross Tie or Caboose.

Re: “New Details on Deb Paquette's Upcoming Sylvan Park Restaurant: Truss

One of the worst train accidents in U.S. history happened about mile away, on the edge of the greenway. Perhaps menu offerings could be derived from that.

Writeman, truss is also a cooking term. It means to bind the wings of a bird while cooking it.

Truss? This is an April Fool's Joke...right? Makes me think of what men use who have a hernia. Truss and food just don't mix. I think you tried way too hard on this one, but best of truss...errr...luck!

There's a Jamaican/American restaurant opening next to Kalamata's in Green Hills soon and Jenni's Splendid Ice Cream is coming to Hillsboro Village.

Also, that logo. Way to use the same font as "etch" and have it look almost identical.

Re: “Green Hills Grille to Reopen this Summer, Alegria Moving to West End

Glad to see GHG return it was always one of our very favorites. I do not like booth seating throughout a restaurant! Will there be no tables with chairs for older customers or those with back problems or larger size customers. Please reconsider this seating decision!!!

Re: “Green Hills Grille to Reopen this Summer, Alegria Moving to West End

Having only lived in GH for 4 years, I'm surprised at the lack of a good bar/restaurant/grill style place in the neighborhood. I'm hoping it will become "my place" and if the menu is a nice "clean" bar & grill type food choice, that will be great.
