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.

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

I've had the chicken salad wrap, the mushroom soup and the breakfast wrap. Very nice. Super nice people and a worthy cause. They make a good mocha too. I don't think the chairs are terrible comfortable, but that's just me. Most people would probably disagree. I am excited to go back and try different things.

Re: “Uneven dinner but spectacular desserts at Adele's left us wondering about the role of Jonathan Waxman

The Gnocchi dish was mainly poorly seasoned eggplant for $18.

MMM. I love banana pudding. Perhaps I'll grab some to go.

I wonder why it isn't noted that they lost their chef de cuisine (who is an EXCELLENT chef) about a month ago now.

Re: “Uneven dinner but spectacular desserts at Adele's left us wondering about the role of Jonathan Waxman

On the other hand, we love Adele's. They give free desserts!**



** to be fair, both times we had significant service issues so they comped us dessert. The first time we were seated and waited 30 minutes for a server to even approach us about offering a drink. Some confusion with whose section we were in, or something, but we ended up asking the manager if she could help end the drought. The second time, they messed up the order and brought us two things we didn't order, and didn't bring us one thing we did order. The front of house management is a catastrophe, but the food is ... fine. Free desserts help.

Re: “12South's poultry-heavy soda shop The Flipside has potential, but it needs more than cute decor

As someone who lives in 12South I can tell you we became a tourist destination some time ago. There is plenty of parking for anyone that's willing to walk a few hundred yards or pay a few bucks.

Re: “Thai Esane's menu leaps borders from Japan to Malaysia and sticks every landing

They have done much better than I expected and we've been twice. Each time the food was excellent!

odd... I ordered Thai native spicy and was very mild. Most of the food was bland.

Bland, safe, over-priced, conceptualized, Disney without the magic, Seaside without the beach. How can you possibly make chicken more boring? Pound the life out of it, then smother it with processed crap. At the height of homegrown tomato season in July, they couldn't be bothered to drive a couple miles to the Farmers Market and get a bushel of the real thing, instead serving trucked in pink softballs. As evidenced by the lines of khaki-clad WASPS inexplicably waiting in line for a table, it's definitely found its audience in uber-gentrified 12South aka Brentwood North.

Be careful about the heat level, I ordered medium and was unable to eat it.

I have some fairly solid rules when dining out - one of which is "I don't order food I can easily make at home that tastes better and costs less than at a restaurant". Chicken tops this list. For that reason, I'll be skipping FlipSide, but best of luck to them.

The chicken noodle soup is life changing-ly good. Seriously, it might have super powers. See photo on Instagram at @nashvillefoodfan

Re: “12South's poultry-heavy soda shop The Flipside has potential, but it needs more than cute decor

By now, most of Nashville's foodies have long since picked up on the difference between an outfit that just wants their money, and one that's willing to give a fair exchange for it.

People in 12 South, East Nashville and Germantown need to wake up and realize their neighborhoods are going to become tourist destinations - it's already happening. There is tremendous opportunity for those who are willing to take the risk and offer something of value for business travelers, people in town for weddings and other non-or-beyond Broadway fun, who are willing to spend on midrange and upscale

Re: “12South's poultry-heavy soda shop The Flipside has potential, but it needs more than cute decor

This place pissed me off to no end. I work down the street and walked down for lunch. I asked the bartender what their favorite thing was. I ended up with a soggy piece of flattened out chicken on white bread with ketchup on it. They even forgot the pickles which wouldn't have saved the dish either. The fries were boring and the milkshake was exactly as described. The worst part of it? It was basically a $25 lunch. It's downright shameful. This place seems nothing more than a rich person/investor who knows nothing about the restaurant business who sunk tons of money designing a beautiful and hip building but decided that their 3am drunk food would be perfect and should be the only thing on the menu. Until they hire a real chef with a real menu I'm going to avoid this place like the plague.

I've only been there once but, the food and service was good. Don't know how often I will make it around the corner to Flipside because of their essentially all chicken menu (the salmon being the solitary exception).

Re: “12South's poultry-heavy soda shop The Flipside has potential, but it needs more than cute decor

I'm a fan and appreciate how they eschew ubiquitous trends like "hot" chicken, $12 burgers and bbq/pulled pork to offer something unique, with a family back-story. The plates I've had have all been good, especially the Cedar Lane and "White Trash" (sub in Siracha for Ketchup). And they're open late . . . with a pretty impressive bourbon selection from what I recall. Nice to have Flipside in the neighborhood and I can see why Carrington is bullish on their continued success (is the way I read it)!
