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

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.

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?

More biscuits? Brunch at Gracious Plenty Wednesday, Sep 11 2019 

Speaking of biscuits, we stopped by Gracious Plenty’s Prospect location on a Saturday recently with our friend Ann, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover its weekend-only brunch menu.

Pho Phi gives your money’s worth Wednesday, Jul 3 2019 

You say “pho,” I say “fuh.” Which is the right way to say it, anyway? Inspired by a couple of bowls of pho, er, fuh, at Phi Pho (“Fee Fuh”), a new, fast-casual pho shop in St. Matthews, I dug into the roots of pho, and – somewhat to my surprise, since I thought I … Continue reading Pho Phi gives your money’s worth
