Engineer, actor, intellectual, mal-vivant.
I tried Boca Loca on Sunday.
$7 for two tiny, gristle-filled tacos (which ends up being $10 after tax and tip, and yes, I had to spit out some of the filling) is a small price to pay to learn where to never go again.
Of course, part of the reason a place like Mexique wouldn't work in Nashville is the aforementioned Tea Party sirens. Folks who happily shell out $30 for a plate of spaghetti at any number of places in town wouldn't stomach that for brown people food.
@TL, Frontera was excellent when I visited in October, although a really huge menu make it tough to decide on what to eat.
I doubt if you'll get really world-class ethnic cuisine out of a "XXX Group of Restaurants." You very literally run into a "too many cooks" sort of problem.
Since Zagat is a Google company, there's a strong possiblity that its crowd-sourcing formula has shifted from people who buy Zagat guides towards people who write restaurant reviews on Google Plus.
Which is to say, the YouTube commenters of the restaurant review world.
You don't "understand." Zagat's "reviews" are "collected" from "actual restaurant patrons" and are loaded with "a whole bunch of quotation marks."
Come to think of it, this is true of Yelp summaries, as well.
It's only a problem if a drone decides to smoke a cigarette in the non-smoking section.
