    The Capital Grille is meat lovers mecca

  • Dining Review: Skewer Published 3/27/2014 at 11:13 a.m. 0 comments

    The new Japanese-influenced restaurant Skewer certainly has very good sushi, or “zushi” as they call it — nigeri, maki rolls, sashimi and more — but that’s not its main thrust.

  • Dining Review: Seasons 52 Published 3/20/2014 at 2:59 p.m. 0 comments

    Everything on the menu at Seasons 52, which is a chain owned by Darden Restaurants, contains 475 or fewer calories, and the menu changes seasonally to feature fresh foods. The wine list includes about 90 bottles, 60 or so available ...

  • Best Bets: Shepherd's Pie Published 3/13/2014 at 3:16 p.m. 2 comments

    Irish food, though, wasn’t something I grew up eating. My mom made corned beef and cabbage, but that was about it on St. Paddy’s Day. I didn’t have my first Shepherd’s Pie, that Irish staple, until I was in my ...

  • Dining Review: Lots of good choices at newest Petra Published 3/13/2014 at 2:02 p.m. 1 comment

    When a colleague noticed that Petra Cafe on Union was closed, we observed a brief moment of silence; then we started complaining. It was an easy place for us to get to for a quick lunch, and a convenient stop ...

  • Dining Review: Soul Fish Cafe (East Memphis) Published 3/6/2014 at 11:08 a.m. 0 comments

    The busy new Soul Fish Café on Poplar in East Memphis is the restaurant’s third location, with the original in Midtown, and the second in Germantown. My first visit to the new location was late on a weekday afternoon, and ...

  • Dining Review: DeJavu Published 2/27/2014 at 11:29 a.m. 0 comments

    It’s not, and has never been, a solely New Orleans-style restaurant. It’s even billed as a Creole-soul-vegetarian restaurant, but the notion that DeJavu is Cajun food persists. Yes, there’s gumbo; ditto for jambalaya. But there’s some fine home cooking coming ...

  • Dining Review: Mellow Mushroom (East Memphis) Published 2/20/2014 at 11:17 a.m. 0 comments

    At Mellow Mushroom, there are 15 specialty pizzas and you can build your own. You’ll find plenty of options and will, if you’re like me, quickly settle on a favorite.

  • Dining Review: Emerald Thai Restaurant Published 1/23/2014 at 3:23 p.m. 0 comments

    Emerald Thai restaurant was a steady presence on Mt. Moriah, across from East End skating rink and the now-closed Neely’s Bar-B-Que, for about 20 years. But when it was time to move last year, the owners didn’t anticipate they’d relocate ...

  • Dining Review: The Second Line Published 1/15/2014 at 5:12 p.m. 0 comments

    This is the everyday, sandwich-and-a-beer place that, when done right, everyone loves. And while it comes as no surprise, it couldn’t be done any better than The Second Line.

  • Dining Review: Greencork Published 1/8/2014 at 8:02 p.m. 0 comments

    Give the kids their frozen yogurt dispensers; there are machines pumping out pours of wine at Greencork in Cooper-Young. The city’s first self-serve wine bar opened in September and has steadily added small plates to its abbreviated but well-considered menu.

  • Best of 2013: Dining Updated 12/27/2013 at 12:17 a.m. 0 comments

    It was a year of mostly casual dining; the big upside to that is that you can eat a meal for about $20 at most of our Top 10 restaurants reviewed in 2013 (and closer to $10 at several). The ...
