Re: “At Green Hills' new market and smoothie bar, the revolution will not be televised — it will be microwaved

What sort of training does one require to be called a "holistic chef?" Serious question. Also, is it possible to reheat these meals in the oven or are they microwave only in their packaging? Nuking precooked fish doesn't seem ideal.

Re: “Scene readers seem to be eating better barbecue these days. Is Nashville finally a 'cue destination?

Until someone finds and photographs Edley's smoker, Nashville has not arrived as a BBQ destination. And puff pieces like this are getting out of hand, only further encouraging Scene readers who are evidently are more swayed by reclaimed wood and mason jars than pits and smoke rings.

Stopped by once and ordered 2 entrees; forgot what they were and for a reason; they were forgettable. Expensive and tasteless. I predict a short tenure.

No offense to Ms. Fox, whose writing I do respect, but there are a fair number of single people and/or childless couples in the world. This, and quite a few of her reviews in the past couple years have really harped/hinged on whether the respective restaurant/business "works" for kids/families. Frankly, the nice thing about Nashville's growth in recent years is that there are many more diverse options, and especially places that are geared only for adults/singles.

I still can't believe that after all the studies and scientific evidence, nutritionists are still loudly proclaiming that low fat is the way to go.

Thanks for the review--I had not heard about this restaurant . Sounds very interesting.

Re: “A menu of 25 dishes you could order in 1989 Nashville but can't now, and the opposite of that

The L&C Tower used to have a restaurant (was it called Nadine's?) that served a spaghetti sauce that was out of this world delicious. If anyone knows what they put in it, I'd love to know.

Re: “In East Nashville's hotly contested Mediterranean sandwich strip, everyone's holding out for a gyro

My two favorite gyros are from Kalamata's, (2 locations,) and Istanbul on Nolensville. Try Kalamata's Rickrak, everything they make is good.

Re: “In East Nashville's hotly contested Mediterranean sandwich strip, everyone's holding out for a gyro

There doesn't seem to be a full service Greek/Mediterraneanant restaurant in all of Nashivlle. I love gyros. Sometimes I dont want to eat McDonalds style. I want to be served.
Anyone have a suggestion?

Except for special occasions, none of these guys are cooking heritage hogs. Their day-to-day pork is all from factory/commercial producers.

I know it sounds counterintuitive, but you can judge the quality of a gyro place based on their falafel. Spiced lamb is delicious, but it can cover a multitude of lazy and low quality sins.

Re: “In East Nashville's hotly contested Mediterranean sandwich strip, everyone's holding out for a gyro

Oh man, we are seriously OBSESSED with Cizar's (and with Haji's, the previous iteration). I just think it's the tastiest gyro meat anywhere. I get the combo platter and the sweetie loves the gyro sandwich. They're so nice and welcoming and the baklava is delish. But Becky's right, now I want to do my own gyro crawl and try them all!

King Solomon's IS MY SHIIIIIIT! Try the hummus gyro with cucumber sauce. It's excellent!

Re: “In East Nashville's hotly contested Mediterranean sandwich strip, everyone's holding out for a gyro

Beskale's Chicago Style Gyros is by far my favorite on the Gallatin strip. I've been going there for 6 years. My husband can't find another gyro sandwich like it and I can't find falafel that good other than Kalamata's and Epice. But, I have to say that I'm more open to trying some of the other Gyro joints again after reading this. Beskale's sauce is my favorite, I had no idea he made it from scratch!

Re: “So what if Pinewood Social is a hundred different things in one? The food is outstanding.

This place is terrible. I'm all for a nice meal, and I'll pay the cost, but the caliber of food for the price is so off at this place. Some dishes are good, some are really bad. It's completely hit or miss. Overall underwhelming. Terribly snotty too.

Re: “At Nashville's branch of Charleston-based Husk, dinner is grand, but lunch is another story

Lady Foodie and I had brunch there on Sunday and it was a disappointment. She got the shrimp and grits that had a distinctive chemical taste and I had the ham small plate that included one tiny biscuit and 6 super thin slices (think "see through") of ham that tasted good but, were an odd ratio of paring the ingredients. My dish also included some inedible pickles. Service was slow and our waiter seemed preoccupied.

Re: “At The Cookery restaurant and culinary program, Brett Swayn nourishes homeless men through social enterprise

Is he, by chance, serving the raw carrot cake? It's off the chain, & I've been trying for 2 years to duplicate it.
