Re: “Top Chef Star Dale Levitski to Open Restaurant in Melrose Theater

Yeah, Levitski is definitely here to do his food. I'm not sure it would have flown 5-7 years ago. Now? I think it's a perfect zig to how Nashville has trended.

Re: “Top Chef Star Dale Levitski to Open Restaurant in Melrose Theater

This quote from another article is key:

"Sam Reed and Ray said Levitski will continue his tradition of "eclectic American" food in Nashville, noting that it will be a departure from the Southern farm-to-table movement that's been populating Nashville in recent years."

Hallelujah. Enough with taking "elevated pimento cheese", deviled eggs, deep fried everything or anything with mayonnaise and making sound like it is worth $25....

Re: “The Cupcake Collection Expanding to Old Becker's Bakery in Donelson

I work at the flower shop two doors down on Saturdays. My concern is that there is only 3-4 parking spaces per business in that strip. Cafe will be hard to do without taking other business parking spaces.

Re: “Nashville's Old House Restaurants

Daniela - I worked at Villa's, too! I tended bar there for a while. Your dad was a joy to work with! I have great memories of that creaky old house and the great guys that worked there.

Re: “The Cupcake Collection Expanding to Old Becker's Bakery in Donelson

This is fantastic news. Now for the next 50 years, everyone in the inner hoods can pretentiously point out that the original Cupcake Collection was in Germantown.

Re: “Five Guys in Green Hills Closes; Menswear Store to Fill Hill Center Space

Loved your work in the Strawberry Alarm Clock, EKing1949. Here's hoping you're wrong on the crash!

High rents KILL business. Margins are SLIM ENOUGH. It's all part of the coming "crash"...the economics are not realistic.

I'd probably include Smyrna as a Nashville-area location as it is a similar distance as Cool Springs and Mt. Juliet.

Re: “Octopus Grabs a Juicy Spot on Nashville Restaurant Menus

I've had the octopus at Rolf and Daughters and at City House. Both were fantastic. Octopus is definitely one of those foods that you probably think you hate only because you didn't have it prepared correctly.

Re: “Octopus Grabs a Juicy Spot on Nashville Restaurant Menus

I haven't had the octopus at Moto, Rolf, or City House, but I did have the octopus salad at Peter's Sushi in Brentwood when I worked down in Maryland Farms, and it was delicious.

Re: “Octopus Grabs a Juicy Spot on Nashville Restaurant Menus

I like the way City House serves the octopus now with the cabbage and breadcrumbs compared to the old rustic way with peas, etc...

Sat at the chef's bar with my 8 year old son last week and prior to our belly ham pizza, we split the octopus. He let me have probably two bites of it.

Re: “Octopus Grabs a Juicy Spot on Nashville Restaurant Menus

I had the octopus pizza at Lockeland Table a month or two ago. It was really, really good. Never been a huge octopus fan (only had the sashimi version), but took half of this home and ate it cold for lunch the next day - equally tasty!

You should have repeated the last paragraph eight times.

Re: “Swallow, Don't Spit: 'Oil Pulling' Is a Crime Against Food

Another thing is you shouldn't really talk about wasting food. Talk about it if you have lived in a third world country for 20 years or more. In the N. America, lots of food is already wasted. This is the land of plenty, and the amount of 'wasted' resources you mention in this article, is nothing compared to the amount of resources wasted in these types of lands.

I agree about it being harmful to the environment or whatever, but I'm sure that's part of the miniscule of all.
