So what is happening to Rick Wildeboor? Isn't that why people are bummed? Or were people just worried about preserving the aesthetic of the place?

Oh my god, the thing stopping me from going there is the smoke - makes everything taste like ash

Haven't gotten a chance to try Union Common yet, so them!

Nicki: Romes can be great but they soften and loose their crispness after a day off the tree. I never try Romes from the markets here in Nashville, but some of those orchards near Crossville grow them. A Rome is my favorite when I can eat it under the tree I picked it from.

I think you shouldn't take the smoking away!! That's kind of the reason it's nice to go there... Its nice to see someone investing in Dinos, but I don't think I'm going to go there if you make it smoke free.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Apple?

I've been buying apples from the same folks for the last couple of months at the Murfreesboro Saturday Market (too bad tomorrow's the last one for the year!), and their supplier is an orchard in Pikeville. Might be Wooden's:

In any case, I've really been enjoying the apples, including the actually-delicious Golden Delicious; thanks for the shout-out, Dana! I didn't like the Mutsus all that much, because while they were big and juicy they were a little bland to my taste. The honeycrisp have great crunchiness and are super sweet, but the Winesaps and Romes just taste more apple-y to me (even though the Romes are better for cooking, I don't mind the extra chewing). I haven't seen a lot of Macintoshes or Jonathans, but I like those a lot, too, for the same reason.

Has anyone eaten a Flower of Kent (the kind that grew around Isaac Newton's house, whether or not it hit him on the head)?

Re: “First Bite: Party Fowl Is Open, Serving Up Hot Chicken to the Gulch

I tried the Poultygeist half chicken and it was a good medium flavor (4/10 on my heat scale) but the quality of the fried chicken was very good (9/10 on my taste scale). I don't think they want customers running for milk / ice or getting sick while at dinner so i respect their decision to keep the heat at this governed level. Atmosphere was nice and I liked the friendly staff, pretty reasonable prices, and got my plate in 15 minutes from ordering. I'll be returning for seconds in the future.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Apple?

I love love love Honeycrisp (I want to try that chili powder/lime combo mentioned above), but last season I also had some really wonderful Aurora apples. Pink ladies are also awesome with peanut butter.

Re: “Helen's Hot Chicken Opening Location on Jefferson Street

I've tried a few Hot Chicken places in Nashville, and I have to say Helen's is HANDS DOWN THE BEST I've had. I'm am freaking ADDICTED!!!!!! So glad to hear they are getting a new location!

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Apple?

Mutsu is my favorite, and I've got a friend who's crazy for Macouns. Do either of those grow in TN?

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Apple?

I'm really in to Sweet Tangos this year. But, I do love a Cameo from the Asheville/Hendersonville area in NC. I was in the area for their annual Apple Festival, and if apples in hand pies count as a variety... those might be my number one.

My hands down favorite is golden delicious.

Pink Lady, then Honeycrisp, then Braeburn. I like the tart ones.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Apple?

I would like to have a talk with someone who likes Rome. I just don't get their appeal as an "eating" apple, but they cook nicely & hold their fragrance and shape when cooked. They make a good pie.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Apple?

I do love a York, but I hardly ever see them now. I am loving Wolf River, a really early apple out of South Carolina. they come in around August, so they're probably gone now, or overripe. They can be hard to find, but usually someone at the farmers market has them.

Honey Crisp sprinkled with that chili powder/lime concoction.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Apple?

"Overhyped lattes" - Heh!

I was just discussing with a friend yesterday about why one of the boutique wineries in the area doesn't convert to a cidery instead of trying to create palatable wines with our pitiful local grapes or sweet berry wines. Our terroir certainly is more appropriate for growing great apples than grapes, and cideries are taking off in NC and VA.

And a quick question. How do you know the flavor of fancy ladies' perfume? 8^)

I was hoping someone would document the transition! Fuck you, Nashville.
