Re: “Taj serves some of the best Indian food in town, but skip the lunch buffet

I'm excited to try Taj. I learned to love Indian food in Cincinnati, OH and have not found anything here that is as good as my favorite restaurants there. Based on this review, I think Taj might be the place I've been looking for!

Re: “Taj serves some of the best Indian food in town, but skip the lunch buffet

Agreed on all points, except we don't eat meat, and we found, on our first visit, that the buffet was outstanding. Each dish was distinct in flavouring, with items such as black cardamom & ghee potatoes, and several vegetable pans that ranged in heat. We've also been back and ordered off the menu, and we we also not supplied with an item we ordered, but all else was so suffice that we were still extremely pleased with our meal. Over the last couple of buffet visits, the offerings were not quite as alive, but still hand-over-hand far better than any other brunch offered by other Nashville Indian buffet venues. We are very lucky to have discoverd Taj, and hope it gets more business than it can handle so it will open another location on the east side of town.

I'm willing to eventually give them a second try but, my first attempt with them was awful and can be seen here:

I would agree that this a poorly written review. In most larger cities there is communal dining... Right off the bat I questioned if I wanted to read any further. Go check it out for yourself, and maybe some one a little more intellectual will write a decent review.

Re: “At The Treehouse in Five Points, Latin-influenced family-style dining reaches lofty heights

I don't know if Treehouse is worthy of a good review or not, although this is a "positive" review. This review is terrible. I am pretty sure I wrote a better review in 6th grade "Creative Writing" class.... Though the story was about a futuristic life on a space station, it was still a better written critque of current events/policy than this review is of any restaurant.

"We balanced the savory starters with a gorgeous plate of pineapple, drizzled with lime and molasses and presented like a sliced tenderloin or sushi roll."

Here is a word that replaces that nonsense and relates to what youre trying to say... "shingled" or "layered"

Also...

"Next came a hearty spin on the classic patatas bravas, a rustic crockery bowl of home fries topped with tomato-mint crema."

You do realize that patatas bravas have nothing to do with tomato or dairy right?! This is terrible food writing and you should all be ashamed of yourselves. If only this were the primary example...

Treehouse is awesome from all accounts and this commentary is based on me actually reading the reviews posted on this website. I wish the dining public in Nashville really got to experience food journalism in a responsible and interesting way beside cush reviews and sponsorships from sub par restos.

Re: “At The Treehouse in Five Points, Latin-influenced family-style dining reaches lofty heights

An anecdotal review: we ordered the short ribs & chocolate. They were delicious, save for the stripe of thick, caked-on orange chili powder. It made the ribs very pretty, but when we finished eating, there was a virtually inedible strip of rib left over with a stripe of thick, caked-on orange chili powder. It was emblematic of a restaurant that's trying very very hard.

LOVE this place. The first time we went, I told them I was in the mood for something with gin and ginger. They brought me fresh-juiced ginger root w. gin, simple syrup and lemon. Yes, please!

Re: “Talking tater tots and more with Trevor Moran, who just left the world’s best restaurant for The Catbird Seat

He was the guy who took care of us at the CS when I went, and he is the nicest, funniest guy. One of the courses was a pigeon leg (with foot attached) that was a bit difficult to cut through. My girlfriend was having some trouble and Trevor walked up, and without a word placed a knife in front of her plate and then stood back and looked at her. She gave him an inquisitive look and he said, "oh, I'm sorry, the knife you were using appeared to not be working so I thought you could use a replacement." Perfect deadpan delivery. He's fantastic.

*Sidenote: the knives they have are designed to balance on the spine. Every detail is impeccable.

I think the fish and chips at Fleet Street in Printer's Alley is a fairly good representation of what Ive experienced in England. I'll pass on Capt. D's...

I thought he was a pretty interesting guy when we "met" at the Catbird so I really enjoyed this piece. Cannot wait to get back to the CS to see what it's like when he's at the helm.

This is the best thing to happen to Hillsboro Village since Hillsboro Auto opened.

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

After 3 visits now I still think this is the freshest and most exciting idea in hospitality and dinning in Nashville. But, all that said, Pinewood may not be for everyone. One of the more recent discoveries we made yesterday; you simply can't get any food of any kind between 3-4 PM. They explained that is when they are switching between menus but, please! Not having anything at all, no appetizer, no bread, simply nothing as you only choice in that one hour period is silly. For brunch today I had the grilled cheeseburger and I so wish restaurants would toast the buns so they would be less likely to become soggy and fall apart would be nice. Oh, and I like my fires to be crispy, not the soft and soggy style they serve. My daughter had the smoked trout omelet and she loved every bite!

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

@smalltowngirl-- while I had two great meals there, I heard from some people that go on a regular basis, that sometimes it is great and other times not so much. That being said, I do think that the sous chefs working with Josh are on the same level. They come from some of the best restaurants on the country, but places like PerSe don't do 700 covers a day...
They definitely weren't expecting the volume they have gotten and are adjusting--trying to make sure cooks are executing their ideas--it's definitely on their radar though. Let's not forget they haven't really been open very long.
