Copper Kettle A Restaurant Report

The Copper Kettle is curled up right at the feet of Lipscomb University on the Granny White side in a small row of shops. Draper’s Jewelry anchors one side and the Kettle is tucked right in the middle. If you are a southerner, then I do not have to explain what I mean by the …

Table 3 A Restaurant Report

Titanic 3D is 3 hours long. This apparent non sequitur does have a point. My wife and I dropped our daughter off at the movie and we had that amount of time to kill. What could be better than a long, leisurely dinner to kill that time? The great thing in this instance is that …

Stone Creek Dining- A Restaurant Report

On a recent trip up through Indiana I had occasion to stop in Noblesville for dinner at a small chain restaurant called Stone Creek Dining. They have 6 locations in Indiana and Ohio and they describe themselves as being “upscale but casual”. The Noblesville location is in one of those trendy outdoor malls that are …

In-N-Out Burger Restaurant Report

Yes, it is a bit strange that I am reviewing a fast food restaurant, but this particular one is a decadent pleasure for me. In-n-Out Burger is a Western US chain with just over 250 locations spanning California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah. Oh yeah, and Texas…as long as you consider Dallas/Fort Worth part of Texas. …

City House- A Restaurant Report

It is a conundrum. Can a restaurant that has pulled pork, collard greens and catfish on the menu really be an Italian restaurant? That is the question I asked myself as I was perusing the menu on a date out with my lovely wife. Judging by the razor-thin pizzas delivered to the tables around us …

Serpentine- A Restaurant Report

I had a couple of things to do in the Dogpatch neighborhood of SF and somebody recommended I try out Serpentine at the corner of 22nd and 3rd. I hopped on the web and made a 12:30 reservation. Yes, I realize that making a lunch reservation makes me hopelessly pretentious but I am a motivated …

Germantown East- A Restaurant Report

Germantown Cafe is a stalwart name in Nashville’s dining circles. They have been serving sublime food without fuss for 8 years in the historic area just north of Bicentennial park. They had a sister restaurant across the river called Allium that I reviewed here a couple of months ago. I actually had a reservation at …

Olives in Nassau- A Restaurant Report

I have just survived my first cruise experience. A four-day Carnival Funship trip from Jacksonville to the Bahamas and back. Cruising was not quite what I expected. The food and entertainment were better than I thought they would be. The crowds and summer camp type schedule were actually worse than I thought they would be…but …

Beaudevin- A Restaurant Report

HMSHost is a behemoth of a company with food and retail locations in 110 airports world-wide. Although they have cursed my soul by bringing Burger King and KFC to the airport dining process, they have done something to make me forgive them. Beaudevin (French for fine wine) is indeed a beautiful sight in the hallways …

Paradis- A Restaurant Report

Sleepy is an overused adjective when applied to towns. Likewise picturesque and a host of other moth-eaten strings of text that half-talent hacks like myself use to paint word pictures. Rosemary Beach along 30-A in the Redneck Riviera of the Florida Panhandle is one of those tiny beach side towns that leaves you searching for …
