Re: “There are no sacred cows at Chauhan Ale and Masala House

Advice, I had the mussels in the cioppino, but not the mussel starter but it looked really, really good.

I think the 900 million was stuck in my head from something I wrote 10 years ago. They been gettin' bizzy on the subcontinent!

Re: “There are no sacred cows at Chauhan Ale and Masala House

PG, the 900 million are just the folks doing the cooking. It's their "cookways".

The other 350 million are just happy to eat whatever the cooks are dishing up. It's like my house, on a slightly larger scale.

Re: “There are no sacred cows at Chauhan Ale and Masala House

Nice review, Nicki - have enjoyed both my visits (did you try the mussels?? YUM.) Also, Chef Chauhan visited the table both times, as gracious as she could be.

India has about 1.25 billion people, not 900 million.

You're funny.

Re: “Here are five local burgers you should be eating right now

This article is another example of the Nashville scene's incompetent reporting. How can you leave out some of the biggest burger staples in Nashville, especially when the restaurant business is booming and a new place is opening every day. Did you only pick the first four restaurants you went to? Was there any real investigation into the best burgers in Nashville? What about slider house and for heavens sake, how do you possible leave out BURGER REPUBLIC?? They were in the finals of the worlds best burger...but didn't even make the cut for one of the best burgers in Nashville? I'm so fed up with the Nashville scene's biased and irrelevant articles. Actually do some real investigation rather than asking the person in the cubicles around you what their favorite burger is. You may as well just put Wendy's and mcdonalds and call it a day.

Re: “Sunset Grill closes, ending a 24-year chapter in Nashville restaurant history

I've lived in Nashville since 1998. Sunset Grill was where I had my 21st birthday party and was the first place anyone ever bought me a glass of wine. I've been to wine pairings there, I've eaten a ton of their nachos, and I have loved every experience I've ever had there. My boyfriend and I would constantly eat there when he lived on Love Circle. I knew staff on a first name basis. On New Year's Eve 2014, I had no idea when I booked the reservation that it would be my last dining experience at Sunset. The hostess (who usually served) said to me on the way out 'it's so good to see your face around here'. That's just the kind of service you got there. They had a handful of loyal servers who truly got to know their customers.

Upon reading the article on New Year's Day 2015 stating that Sunset Grill closed its doors forever, I was saddened, because while reading, I realized that so many of the newer restaurants in Nashville do not have a personal attachment to the City I live in. Sunset did. I felt immediate empathy for the staff who worked so hard. I prayed for them to find employment in a month where the service industry suffers the most (January is tough after the holidays).

Thank you for allowing me to spend one last night at Sunset. It will be one I'll hold in my memory bank for a very long time.

Why Not- the COOLEST place in NashVegas- and they had to close it down. Another of our fave haunts- gone.

Re: “Here are five local burgers you should be eating right now

I'm going to propose that you come out west on I40 and check out Tony B's in Dickson. If you come for lunch you'll probably see most of the people that work in Dickson eating there...

Re: “Prima is a really good Mediterranean restaurant, and a so-so steakhouse

$26 for chicken? $46 for an 8 oz steak? Let me guess, do they offer $20 premium cocktails? Good luck!

Re: “Prima is a really good Mediterranean restaurant, and a so-so steakhouse

Here's the thing: there are some people who will always want to go to a steak restaurant and always order the steak. I think it's great that Prima (and Kayne Prime) know that some people go to these restaurants with steak-lovers, but want something else. Both restaurants would get my recommendation over yet another trip to the Stockyard or Jimmy Kelly's for a business dinner because there is something for everyone. The vegetarian and pescatarian options at Prima are fantastic (I haven't been as tempted to fall off the wagon in 15 years as I was over the grilled octopus) and the menu is truly unique. I think that deserves more positive attention even if the steaks aren't truly remarkable.

Re: “Here are five local burgers you should be eating right now

Dalton's Grill in Bellevue has a fantastic bacon cheeseburger. Also need to mention Sportsman's in Belle Meade. The Fat Mo's on White Bridge Rd has been terrible the last couple times I've tried it, granted I have only had the courage to go three times in the past three or four years because each experience has been so bad. Like the patties seemed like they were frozen and microwaved or something. Maybe it was a few isolated experiences but it didn't seem anything close to what I had grown to expect over the years. Did the White Bridge one come under new ownership in the past three or four years?

Re: “Here are five local burgers you should be eating right now

It's hard to believe that any listing of the best burgers in Nashville did not include Rotier's grilled cheeseburger. It's a classic and always delicious; you can count on its quality like you can the ticking of the everpresent clock. I fear sometimes we get caught up in the new, the novel, and the outrageous (and, I fear, also the price, as in the more outlandish the cost, the better!!) as we make such lists. That's something that all journalists, especially those dealing with foods, should strictly avoid! KISS (" Keep it simple stupid!").
