Get your sushi on the go from ToGo Sushi Wednesday, Aug 12 2020 

One of the great pleasures of sushi for me is the opportunity to sit down at the sushi bar, admire the artfully arranged rows of beautifully cut seafood and fish, and talk with the chef about what’s interesting and good. But I have to be honest: During the pandemic, the idea of joining a few … Continue reading Get your sushi on the go from ToGo Sushi

Secrets of the burger chefs Wednesday, Jun 24 2020 

Some days you feel like a burger. Some days you feel like a steak. But let’s make one thing perfectly clear: This is not a matter of better and best. The simple, honest burger in no way takes second place to the faux nobility of the tenderloin, rib eye, strip, or porterhouse. Sometimes, when you’re … Continue reading Secrets of the burger chefs

You can’t beat the pho at NamNam Café Wednesday, Mar 18 2020 

It’s easy to overlook NamNam Café. It’s tiny, you don’t hear a lot about it, and it’s off on a St. Matthews side street. But you really shouldn’t miss it. It’s one of my favorite Vietnamese restaurants, even among a dozen strong competitors. [During the Covid-19 closure of dine-in restaurants, NamNam is offering carryout and … Continue reading You can’t beat the pho at NamNam Café

Pizza, beer, and more at Union 15 in Colonial Gardens Wednesday, Mar 4 2020

Fork & Barrel’s brunch soothes and satisfies Wednesday, Feb 19 2020 

There is something indulgent about brunch that we don’t often experience at even a lavish dinner. It’s not necessarily a matter of gluttony: I’d rather choose from a selection of chef-created morning and midday dishes rather than dive into a gigantic buffet spread under plastic hoods known as sneeze guards. Ick. No, the joy of … Continue reading Fork & Barrel’s brunch soothes and satisfies

Around the world on a plate at Diamond Street Grub Wednesday, Feb 12 2020 

I’m generally a bit skittish about restaurants that offer a mix of different world cuisines that extend well beyond the chef’s personal DNA. How can one chef master so many culinary arts? So I wasn’t sure what to expect when Diamond Street Grub & Hops came to town last summer: Its international menu draws randomly … Continue reading Around the world on a plate at Diamond Street Grub

Noche, the church of Mexican BBQ Wednesday, Jan 22 2020 

The tall gray stone sanctuary of Calvary Lutheran Church was approaching its 90th anniversary when its congregation, aging and declining in numbers, regretfully decided to pack it in. “Emptying the building. Sad work,” the Rev. Austin Newberry wrote in February 2016 in the final post on Calvary’s Facebook page. But now the lofty nave is … Continue reading Noche, the church of Mexican BBQ

What’s a bhaji pav? Honest Indian’s new delights Wednesday, Jan 15 2020 

Way back in 1975, when hardly anyone around here knew what street food was, Vijay Agrawal took his first steps toward culinary success when he added bhaji pav – a popular Mumbai veggie curry dish served with white rolls – to the selection of his outdoor chaat (snack) cart in downtown Ahmedabad, India’s fifth-largest city. … Continue reading What’s a bhaji pav?
