I originally took exception to your comment that using Duke's wasn't "southern". Duke's is originally from SC, while Hellman's originated in a deli in NYC, and Kraft is based out of Chicago.
I'm not a big mayo person, but when I do use it I use Duke's. I don't like the added sweetness of the others, and I think that Duke's has more of a rich, yolky taste. (Hence the more like homemade comment).
Good call, you are of course correct. It does take you to the Charleston location. I had played around on the site a week or so ago and the open table link said they weren't taking reservations yet. Since the link worked now I just assumed it was the Nashville location. My bad.
Looks like reservations went live at some point. Most of the prime times are booked for the first few weeks. Also sample lunch and dinner menus are up on the website.
The only times I've had good food on a plane was when I was flying Air France back from Europe. Had it two different times so I don't think it was a fluke.
I attended the Otaku Extra Large event. For me the yakitori was the standout.
Also, Wedge Oak farms is sending their pork to Link 41 in Chattanooga to be made into sausages. Wedge Oak is selling them at the West End farmer's market. They are also making mangalista bacon. Pricey but delicious.
Went to the Yellow Porch for lunch, they had 3 servers working but no host. So server 1 is taking down names and then server 2 takes over as host. Wait for awhile and then see people that arrived after my party get seated. Server 2 had started a new wait list. No apology. Finally get seated, and end up in server 2's section. Awful service , I had to get server 3 to bring drink refills and eventually the check. Saw server 2 flirting with a table of women that weren't his table virtually the entire time. So, after 2+ hours I was given the privilege of spending $25 on two sandwiches and drinks.
One time I was sitting at the bar near the server well in a restaurant and this one server kept filling drinks and constantly carrying the glasses by putting their fingers inside the glasses. The bartender saw it eventually and explain to the server the proper way to carry the glasses. Makes you wonder how long that had been going on.
I'm surprised that Nashville is #9. But it is hard for me to really judge pizza cities; on my most recent trips to both Chicago and NYC I didn't eat any pizza. Too many other great options for me to hazard a meal on pizza unless I've heard rave reviews.
I would pick New York style pizza over Chicago; I prefer thin crust. And if I was taking someone out in Nashville for pizza it would be Probably be City House, though I have t made it to Desano's yet.
The 12 South Taproom is going to be open on St. Patrick's (usually closed on Sundays) with $3 draft Guinness and Harp, food specials and supposedly some giveaways.
